In case you missed it last week, the world’s been fixated on a giant cargo ship called the ‘Ever Given’ ran aground about a week ago, blocking the Suez Canal and disrupting global trade routes. There’s no good reason as to why this ship captured headlines and memes around the world, but it did, and it was hilarious.
To take the joke into the realm of videogames, a savvy modder added a satellite image of the stuck ship to Flight Sim. It’s unlikely that this stuck ship will bring together the Flight Sim community as the giant hole did, but it’s still fun to see gamers adding current events like this to the game.

It would have been a lot more fun to see the development team behind the game actually add an official update that brought the ship to the game last week, but since the boat was only stuck temporary, it likely wasn’t a priority.
