If locations need to be discovered to be shown on the map, then how come my skillet who's done like 10 quests can see priff and other locations locked behind quests on the map?


Some NPCs have discovered and put them on the lore of Gielinor. Remember, you are not the only inhabitant of Gielinor. :)

So you agree that Fossil Island should be on the map then?


Absolutely not since it is not discovered by any RS3 NPC or put them in the lore. The Varrock Curator only talked about an island they may want to take a look at, but there is no Fossil Island mentioned, and more importantly no exact location is being talked about.

Again, that Island is clearly Fossil Island. You can call the island whatever you want, but that doesn't change the game's canon. The curator even says that it's "North of Morytania". While that doesn't technically give degrees east and north (aka X and Y coordinates), that's a detail level consistent with just about everything else in the game.

We have already gone through this. There is not only no lore, no name and no location for Fossil Island. Either you show where in the lore and what NPC tell us about "Fossil Island" and where exactly is it or I have no intention to help you go in circle.

My sole intention of the post you quoted was meant for UrekMazino's question and my answer is "No. I don't agree Fossil Island should be on the RS3 map".

I see what your intention is, however this is lore, as well as a general location set for "Fossil Island". I showed you where the lore is: right where they are building the barge in the Digsite.

If you don't call that lore, then you don't call that lore, but that is sufficient for the vast majority of players, especially those normally concerned with lore. Feel free to agree to disagree with me.

Well good thing he's allowed to respond to any post in any thread, isn't it?

"We're talking about Fossil Island, not Garbage Island. We're talking about RS3:D. Garbage Island is going to be added to a very different game:D:D:D (Hint: look in the Pacific Ocean)"


Of course, Fossil Island or Mermaid Storage Unit or such have no places in RS3. Therefore they are not going to be added... so that it won't waste the Jmods' time to remove them laster.

"And his point is that NPCs have discovered Fossil Island and Zeah, and they are not on the world map. Therefore, your argument is invalid"


No NPCs have discovered Fossil Island or Zeah in RS3. No Jmods have neither. Therefore we don't see any Fossil Island and such. You can't argue with Jmods, just live with it.:

"No. No Fossil Island"
.

"So you agree that Fossil Island should be on the map then?"


No. Absolutely not since it is not discovered in RS3 and has not used in the game. There's also why Jmods don't add it on the RS3 map. :D


Everything in the Runescape universe has a place RS3 and OSRS, this is a fact. Fossil Island and Zeah are mentioned by NPCs in RS3 (and thus they are discovered), and your denying it doesn't change the underlying facts. As you say, you can't change it, so live with it:D:D:D:D

Dilbert2001:
it doesn't matter how many times you repeat the same faulty logic, it's going to remain faulty. Just like your trying to call it 'Garbage Island' doesn't change the fact that Fossil Island (if implemented this year, which is extremely unlikely) would be easily the best update of 2019 (so far). Now get off my thread.


Commentary for interest: Where is zeah mentioned? I haven't found anything about it in the RS3 wiki.
Improvements: Tooltip / (F2P) QoL v2
Quick Fixes: Invention

It was not mentioned as Zeah persay, but there was an NPC that was from the "western lands", and in the context one could tell that it was referring to a western continent, not part of the current continent.

I saw it a while ago and I haven't been able to find it since. I thought that it was somehow related to the Tormented Wraith, but that might be wrong. I've searched the Runescape Wiki and I can't find it, however I know it was there, and unless an update messed with it, it should still be.

I did not tell him he was not allowed to respond whatsoever. In fact, I told him since he added nothing new worthy to discuss, I did not intend to go further with him on that. I just told him my sole intent of the post he quoted was to tell you "No. I don't think Fossil Island should be on the RS3 world map".

Likewise, I have already answered your question and you also don't seem to have added anything new worthy to discuss, so I am also telling you I have no further interest to "discuss" with you whatever players allowed or not allowed to post. Thank you for your comment. :)

Please provide references of that NPC so that we can discuss. I know there is lore about the Western Land but it was related to the God War period when the elves moved to their current "Western Land" home, not Zeah or other new continent, to avoid conflicts with the Zamorakians. :)
