I don't remember where but either Mod mark or the former Mod MMG (back then I didn't know the difference between the 2) said that it was fossil island (then referred to by players as kudos island! Also suppose to be home to a dragonkin and claimed that we didn't have it because it would require lots of time and developers (equivalent to menaphos or elf city) and the island was an option in a player poll and old school museum was what became rs3 museum so I doubt the osrs museum island is a different island!

Mod Mark said that in 2012 but was proven just a passion project and never being worked on by Mod Osborne in 2014:

"Draconis V - Are there any concrete plans for Fossil Island?

Mod Osborne:Not concrete. It's a Mod Mark passion project, so I can imagine it getting made at some point in the future. For now, nothing is being worked on."


http://www.webcitation.org/6NwfN3ESd

There was later a RS3 poll of The Arc vs Fossil Island.

The players said: "The Arc, I chose you!". So that's the last time Fossil Island was heard outside the game. Inside the game, there has never been a single word regarding "Fossil Island".
Not by name but like osrs that's what getting the kudos and the barge building were for (hence why players called it kudos island for years) It didn't receive an official name till osrs but considering the requirements to get to it is likely referring to the same island! Also the island that mark mentioned was also said to be littered with the bones of long dead creatures! TAPP are passion projects too so passion project doesn't neseccarily mean they don't want to make it and I explained the reason behind it in my post! They gave the same reason for why elf city took so long to make! Ironically osrs will get elf city which mod mark said would the systems only available in RS3!

I never said he worked on the osrs island and if you want to get technical Osbourne said it was a passion project that he could imagine getting made at some point in the future! It just wasn't being worked on and I stated that in my post! My point was simply to indicate that it has been mentioned at certain points and if you look at streams and forums people have been asking about the island for quite sometime (although I will note the early mention would have referred to it as kudos island) Please read my entire post!

and the lore's different because the osrs team actually took the time to make it and actually paid attention to detail! I'm not ragging on osrs and there is plenty of content that years ago they said they had no plans to work on that they have either since made or said they are considering making

I know all this but it still could get built eventually! We voted for vampire quest over dungeoneering doesn't mean we won't get the final floors eventually ! And there are things people voted for that Jagex put in the surveys that Jagex now says they can't or won't do! Weather, Pet Park ,THE FULL BANK REWORK, the return of old holiday items etc. (yeah I know that last one was never going to happen but it's the priniciple)!Also if we're putting our trust in the wiki then the osrs fossil island and the thing that the barge is supposed to lead to in rs3 are indeed the same thing read the trivia!

uh have you look at recent surveys or read the rules for the polls they asked whether we wanted stuff like zeah added into rs3 and they state specifically in the rules for the polls that a option not winning does not mean it won't happen eventually!Perfect example of losers they intend to make eventually rite of passage(and players will never let them forget about that one) and death of chivalry2!Heck the location (underwater city) of the third dungeon creation was supposed to be behind both menaphos and Acheron in the pecking order! And I think you may have misunderstood I didn't mean the 2 fossil islands were the exact same I meant from the perspective of what the barge and kudos in both games are supposed to lead too! Also I know people have been asking for monkey madness 2 in game for ages!

also while it is in a nearby location dragon slayer 2 is not required to get to fossil island in osrs! I was just giving examples of it being mentioned in general not in game ( I was referencing mods saying stuff)I'm not saying it will ever happen but it still could! That's all I mean by this entire post! Plenty of theories are posted on this chat!Also I'll acquiesce they might not be the same island but it's like the mystery prisoner (???) in lord of vampyrium before river of blood was added!It's possible it might not be efaritay but all signs in the quest pointed to it being her! and osrs is getting elf city and we got our mammoths finally is rs3 (another thing people asked for years)!

Also if we aren't going to get an island for the barge (when it's built) to go to they should remove kudos from rs3 because they serve no purpose! Sorry somehow I duplicated my post!

the barge was created before the achievements thing and both that and the xp was added because without the island they don't serve a purpose the curator even say earning kudos is supposed to get you a seat on that barge! In other words Jagex added those thing so people wouldn't be annoyed that they earned those things for nothing! Until they actually add Acheron (fossil island is probably more likely they're just mammoths and Jagex has for the most part avoided adding new content to the wild in Rs3! but by your own words elf city in osrs maybe different but they still got it! I'm not argueing for or against it I'm just saying it's not impossible it could happen this thread was mean for discussion about the possibility nothing more! Finally I'm not saying they have to be the same I'm saying indications point to rs3 kudos island being fossil island that's all

I agree and for the hundredth darn time I wasn't argueing that it was been made currently just that getting it eventually was possible and the mammoths and everything look that way because osrs wants to keep the old graphics and don't want abilities!

yeah but this thread is a discussion about fossil island not every potential update in the game! I was giving info examples in general not in game stuff most of the info on the subject in the wiki is from years ago! Until Osborne called it fossil island most players referred to it as kudos island (for obvious reasons)!

Not likely the same thing since they were polled against each other (arc vs fossil island) in the polls as you mentioned and the dragonkin on the island was mentioned long before we knew about the effects of the stone of Jas!That still leaves the barge and the kudos matter also the location which is supposed to be near morytania

There are plenty of "islands" north of Mortynia the Museum Curator can go to with whatever "barge". Which one do you like him to go to? I like the smallest one and I heard there are mermaids there. :D

I bet Arprosanda will come out first, but Jagex has to seriously change their mind from finding anything useful from it, before any other new maps considering it is in the lore of the actual game and mentioned more than 15 years ago. :D
point taken but where did you read about the mermaids? the barge is that thing being built north of the dig site that is supposed to take us to the museum island! There's even a small piece of lore behind why it's taking so long to finish

read the wiki it's on gielinor plus kerapac would probably need to be on gielinor as it is stated that orthen predates guthix arrival! Here's a really good question: The Needle according to memories is broken who's to say it will even work correctly?

Me thinks it isn't dead yet!


Not quite dead now but if the boat really sailed to the "Foss..." or Isla Perdida where the shadowish spot is on the RS3 map, then Fossil Island on RS3 is pretty dead unless they want to come up with new lore to construct another barge. :D
Technically they are the barge slash boatwork hasn't been removed! Also The NPCs said they don't actually know what exactly is on it so they haven't explored it! who's to say how they found it in the first place Maybe someone got shipwrecked! That part has never been elaborated on! Also why add that island( that fog covered thing is an island ) if we aren't going to go to it! That's probably why they don't put the whole arc on the map because players might insist they be allowed to go to the other parts Also I just check the wiki Haig Halen said the barge was started after the discovery of the uncharted swamp island so that's still the same one except now its a boat

The Barge hasn't sailed there Talk to Haig Halen the Barge was started "after" the island was discovered and earning kudos is supposed to grant us passage on it to the island! The lore is now they have the funds to finally finish building the barge/boat to go there and explore!And Jagex has discussed adding zeah to rs3 in surveys! Just because it's in osrs doesn't mean it might not someday be in rs3! by that view osrs players shouldn't get priffidnas (especially since Jagex always said the old graphics wouldn't do it justice )hence the long wait to get it!

Jagex said "No. No Fossil Island" just about a month ago already. The barge also shows no sign to go to where the OSRS Fossil Island is. However, people saw that shaded out spot on the world map today and claimed it was Fossil Island... until they found out it is not even at where the actual Fossil Island is then hey it means nothing at all. :D
The islands don't have to be in the same place like you said they are different games but the new npc refers to it as TIFKAFI so it's the rs3 equiv! Or it's orthen which is also a possibility

If two islands are not in the same place and don't have the same name, obviously they are not the same islands. :D:D:D
Then why does the NPC refer to it as TIFKAFI if it isn't (or wasn't) fossil island! Tutorial island and the wizard's tower exist in both game in same area but when they made the tower bigger they moved it under water!

I'm done too who cares who's right we could both end up being wrong! Dilbert this has however been the most engaging chat (both of them) that I have had on the forums! Again the map is beautiful! Maybe we can reopen this conversation once the island is revealed! To take a page from Mod Mark's playbook until then WOOters out!

Look, the odds have improved because they went to the effort of updating the silly barge along with the graphical rework of the rest of the area.

If Fossil Island (or whatever) or not going to get released, then it would have been the perfect time to have removed the barge and the workers, and thus any reference to it.
My point exactly
