Easter Egg or Maritime Disaster?!

Recommended Posts

Hi,

There was I flying out from Juneau Harbour in one of the MILVIZ DHC-2 Beavers when I spotted a strange white patch on a distant island. As I drew closer this alarming scene unfolded:

So, I closed down the sim and reloaded afresh, took off and flew a different approach. Again, the Captain of this same cruise ship seemed intent on another Kamikazi mission:

I landed to take a closer look:

Like the Concordia this could be another challenging salvage job unless, of course, the hull survived unbreached.

Deary me, I would like to be a fly on the wall at this inquest?

Well, would you believe it, looks like this actually happened to a paddle wheel vessel in 2007:

....and, if you read the article, this wasn't the first time it had been involved in a misadventure, including running aground!

Coincidence? Or perhaps there's more to this simming lark than we are being told..LOL!

I believe ships follow a set path, and you can customize it to avoid land, otherwise that happens and they go straight into land.

Heh, yeah the ships can do some peculiar things sometimes. Not that long ago, I came across on that seemed a bit specialhttps://streamable.com/yan1u

Hi Michael,

Never mind the ship, which in itself was executing a very strange manoeuvre, did you see that lightning bolt hit the sea?! Amazing stuff!

Regards,

Mike 😀
