Ive yet to see any "bad" community event personally so.


What is considered 'bad' varies from person to person.

For me, skilling for over 2 hours per day, every day of the event, to collect enough in-game currency (twigs, leaves, embers, tokens, whatever) to unlock all the rewards, where missing even a single day will dash your hopes of completing the event, would be 'Bad'.
Skilling for 30 minutes per day, in a much more forgiving event, not so much.

Where on that scale this new event will come, we have yet to see.

Uhh im sure you're still able to achieve everything even if you start on the last day.

That's how the other event have been at least.

"From day one, this two-week event offers the chance to train Construction, Woodcutting and Farming, and as the boat progresses we’ll be adding more skills! There will be currency with which you can buy unique cosmetics and an XP boost each day, with additional XP boosting items available for 45 RuneCoins – these will offer 2x XP for 30 minutes while helping out with the build. And why not have a quick chat with Mr Mordaut for a cheeky extra task?"


"an XP boost each day"


"2x XP for 30 minutes"


This sounds like the event is actively encouraging daily participation, with at least 30 minutes of skilling per day to maximise the benefits. Plus there is the 'extra task' from Mr. Mordaut (which wouldn't surprise me if they were offered daily). And we don't know how much 'currency' all that will earn, whether it will be sufficient to buy all the rewards available, or if additional activity (or MTX) would be required to gain more currency to make up any shortfall.



(Anyway that's enough ranting about the grind. This thread is supposed to be about the Summer Update, not the event that precedes it, so I'm going to shut up now in the hopes that this thread can get back on track.)

Without buying MTX stuff or playing for an unhealthy amount, I've been unable to complete such "events" starting from the first day, with daily interaction... I absolutely loathe them and am very disheartened to see such a massive update like Fossil Island (or, at this point, just Island :P) is preceded by one.

But as Jon said, let's get the thread back on track.

According to Mod Daze on the Tiwtter, the island won't be similar to OSRS's version (i.e. the originally intended version, as designed by Mod Mark and Mod Maz) but focus on Desperate Times instead. Personally I'm very upset by this... Also why does that quest get a sequel within a few months, while The Prisoner of Glouphrie and Elemental Workshop IV have been waiting for over eight years now... ;_;

Ive only ever used the daily tools and ive always been able to complete it just fine.

Yes it might take more time but oh well but it is doable w/o buying anything.

Im sure only jagex know the answer to this.

The answer is very clear to me and it is... Mod Daze is definitely not Mod Mark or Mod Maz.

Why should different mods have the same idea? Mod Mark might want the barge to go to Fossil Island east of mid Widly but Mod Daze wants the barge to go to Anachronia east of high Wildy. That's why we have 2 different islands with 2 different adventures.

I don't know why should someone be "upset" over the ideas of obviously two different Jmods. Perhaps some female troll in RS3 might be "upset" over My Arm getting married in OSRS too? :D:D:D

Realistically, Anachronia and Fossil Island are two totally different beasts - different in everything including but not limited to location, climate, creatures, story... just about everything you can think of between an apple and an orange? Why be upset that the apple in your hand is not the orange you think it should be?

Regarding why some quests like the dark gnome quest don't have sequels... to me that's really simple and it is they are not too important to the People of Gielinor.

Do you really really think you can make every NPC in Gielinor care about petty gnomes? No, you can't... and that's Xau-Tak.

Jagex has set up a
Dedicated Website for Anachronia
today:

https://info.runescape.com/en-GB/p/world-out-of-time#land-time

Very interesting reveals there...

The concept art pictures show cactus trees. Well, that's a new specie of plants as cactus don't grow on trees and usually in deserts. But hey! In Gielinor, it is a different story. Perhaps Anachronia was once a desert before it became a jungle?

There are frogs and palm trees too, although not so surprisingly to find them in jungles. Perhaps we also learn that the ancestors of modern days frogs in Gielinor look exactly like the modern ones although their sizes may vary. :)

There are also unfossilized skeletal remains of dinosars too. The one lying on top of a river or ocean has a serpentine body with a propotionally large head - kind of like Seiryu or an oriental dragon. Wouldn't it be one of those "huge water-dwelling reptile" which egg Kerapace created QBD from?

Also you obviously missed this:

Also the reward for the kudo is getting access to the island.

Building the boat isn't/hasn't been tied to kudo.

Apparently not, since allegedly there are no requirements to enter the island:

So yeah... the whole thing of "being rewarded for earning kudos" is kinda gone, in favor of just giving people handouts. Sigh...
