I just looked at the darn world map for old and while fossil island in osrs and the land out of time aren't in the exact same spot they are in about the same area! So the the whole not the same spot so not fossil island theory is tenuous at most!


Not just the locations but almost everything from climate, mobs, landscape, plants are different.

Land out of Time looks like sunny and tropical with gigantic mobs like at least the flying serpent-like mob shown on the picture and the earth shaking roaring "terror" at the end of the vid.

I don't think it has the damp moist shady habitat for tiny mushroom men to grow or swarm or wastelands for lizardmen.
I didn't say they were the same I just meant the location thing is debatable

And your mixing up areas lizardmen are on zeah not fossil island! This game has a type of lizard on every climate except snow! Tropical climate are perfect for lizards and mushrooms to thrive! darn buttons sorry for the double post! On a different subject did you know the original ingame dragonkin looked more vulture then a lizard or dragon?

Murhroom men grew on damp moist darker region of Fossil Island.

What do you find from Jagex's reveal video that are in the OSRS Fossil Island?

Does it have huge flying serpentine creature, the plam like trees, sunny weather, huge earth shaking monster roar etc on the OSRS Fossil Island?

The question of 'Fossil Island' being in the wrong place and having the wrong climate is easily explained. Just work through the dialogue with the NPCs in the house at the digsite and pay attention to a single word. Seth Minas (Site Manager) refers to the location as 'The Floating Land of Petrified Remains'...

...and if the island is 'Floating', then it can move!

Another possibility could be found in the title of the update, 'The Land out of Time'. Perhaps this doesn't mean the island has been separated from the rest of Gielinor, allowing the prehistoric inhabitants to flourish undisturbed in some land-that-time-forgot fashion. But perhaps it means the island itself has literally been pulled out of time from the distant past into the present day. The storm clouds currently shrouding that island could be a manifestation of this temporal anomaly.

The climate and position of the island would then be based on the conditions present in its original time, which would have changed over the intervening millennia through the combined processes of climate change and continental drift. This would also explain the apparent lack of fossils shown in the teaser video as noted by some players, as the island's inhabitants simply haven't died and become fossilised (yet)...

....if only there was an NPC with access to a powerful ancient artifact with time manipulating abilities who was deranged enough to do such a thing. Oh, wait.....

We still don't have much controls over game movement especially with boats in the waters. I'm disappointed at all the islands etc.. and still not give us any sort of movement to control the boats themselves to drive us to the islands.

Player owned ports is an example that should have been instituted but instead we get text based instead of getting the game movement. It's basically a cheap escape of programming. Will this be cheaply updated too?
Best wishes to all.

Sure we can't rule out your
possibilities
(or hypotheses because of lack of evidence) of Fossil Island being relocated over time. They can be quite interesting.

If Fossil Island "relocated" in RS3, I think the combined grand map of Gielinor covering both RS3 and OSRS would be thrown away.

This is what Jagex actually said through press release yesterday:

"Wednesday 22nd May 2019, Cambridge, UK – The roars of creatures long dead are set to sound in RuneScape in July with the arrival of a brand-new landmass – and dinosaurs – to its world of Gielinor, Jagex today announced in a teaser trailer, available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5dP-vdnT38. Pulled from the ancient past by the recently revealed antagonist Kerapac, the new environment of Anachronia – The Land Out of Time – sees players arrive on the dino-inhabited island to try and track the dragonkin as he continues working on his mysterious and nefarious plan.

Available for RuneScape members, the island’s ancient shores and deadly jungles will be accessible to new, current and returning players alike. Adventurers looking to follow the storyline over future updates require just three skills (Mining, Smithing, and Divination) to be level 50 or above, along with the completion of two quests: The Needle Skips and You Are It.

Promising a host of new and exciting places to explore, along with new skilling activities, more information about The Land Out of Time will be released throughout June towards launch.

- Ends -"


So its name is Anachronia.
Only level 50 in 3 skills and 2 quests required. No Kudos needed (apparently).

New
skilling activies. That's perhaps the best parts regarding just skilling. Good that it doesn't sound like the same old wc, mining or hunting like Menapohs.

Yes, dinos and dragonkin for those who love dinos. Let's see if they really look like what modern scientists think. :)
