I really like dinos, you can tell. It's a good thing that they fell. If not, we'd be lunch, on our bones, they would munch. My favorite dinosaur is the ichtheosaur, wich had some dolphin-like features. The tylosaurous and the shonisaurus were interesting, and cool ocean/sea/water dinosaurs.Read more >
Hi, I'm Memory.
I'm new to the Isle community and just wanted to ask a question. Is the Isle supposed to be scientifically accurate?
ThanksRead more >
Resently we have had someone messing with our own profiles. If you do not want yours disturbed, then I advise you to protect them for your own safety. As you now know, I have banned the user who has been cause this and more for 6 months. That should give them time to think upon their actions. If you agree with the idea of protecting your profile, then please state your comment below.

Just for clarification I'm talking about the in-game weights.
This will be talking about how much of a T. rex each creature weighs (i.e. a T. rex weighs 1/1 of a T. rex). Of course, these won't be exact most of the time due to the somewhat bizarre nature of the creature weights, but they are usually within 1% of 1% (aka very close).
1 represents a T. rex's weight, so 1/2 means half of a T. rex while 2 means double a T. rex.
Tyrannosaurus- 1 (duh)
Really the point of this post though was to show that the numbers are really arbitrary, and that the odd nature of them is essentially just to cover that up. (Edit) They're actually from more exact con…Read more >
This won't just be a lame "what I think its stats should be." This will be exploring the probable relationship between Tyrannosaurus and its prey and competition in The Isle. Some animals will be easier than others, since some (or their close relatives) lived with Tyrannosaurus (or its relatives). Others will be much more difficult, living in environments completely separated from Tyrannosaurus' grasp. However, I can still present my thoughts about this in the most accurate way I can. This will both explore from a solely realistic view, as well as a more balance-centric view. When possible, I will look at T. rex's hunting habits more than it or its opponents physical traits, since it gives clues as to how significantly of a threat Tyrannosaurus v…Read more >
You may have heard claims of 18, 19, 20 meter Spinosaurus, hell, I've heard them as high as 25 meters. Personally, I find the idea of an 82 foot Spino a bit ridiculous.
I will split this critcism of these claims up into several sections.
I often hear claims from fanboys of 20+ tonne weights for Spinos around the 20 meter range. Estimates larger would likely approach the 30 tonne range.
Let's use Giraffatitan as a means of criticism.
The main criticism here is that Giraffatitan would only be slightly heavier than Spinosaurus (partially due to weight-reducing air-sacs found in most sauropods, but no theropod as far as I know has been found with similar sacs), and yet, Giraffatitan was a pillar-legged quadruped, whilst Spinosaurus had relatively thin le…

I've actually managed to get in contact with some people who are helping me make a mod for the game. However, because they are busy right now, that gives me some time to take suggestions, if anyone wants to give them to me.Read more >
The Spino has recently been super-buffed.
It now loses only 4 stamina a second instead of 5
Its damage has been increased from 550 to 860
It now does bleed (I don't know exactly how much yet).
It does seem to have a slightly slower bite, but this really doesn't compensate for everything else.
This pretty much points to the Spino now being the super predator of the island. Being able to easily face tank a Rex now, it seems to be the ultimate predator. The Rex does still have somewhat absurd healing and leg break though (to my knowledge), so the strategy would be to break a Spino's leg, and run away or slowly wear it down over time (as Rexes did before).
At least it's still the slowest apex.Read more >
I have been resently adding some old images of former official skins before they were removed. The reason Ive been adding these old images is to show people some of the old skins from the good old days of sandbox and having war on other people as certain dinosaurs. I wish some of these skins come back. My favorite was the Grassland TSL T.rex skin, it was so beautiful and majestic in my opinion. Sadly I dont think these skins will come back anytime in the future but through the power of mods, I hope they will.Read more >
In previous years, Sue's weight was estimated at about 8-10 tonnes (8.8-11 tons), however, a new study says otherwise.
Using computer models that ranged from "too skinny, too fat, or too disproportionate," the study found range for Sue's weight that may have been anywhere from 9.5 tonnes to 18.5 tonnes (10.5-20.5 tons). The most likely estimate has been set at 13.99 tonnes, basically 14 tonnes (15.4 tons). Does this mean all dinosaurs were heavier than previously thought? Perhaps, but since very few similar studies have been carried out, it's up to debate for now.Read more >

The weight system has been remastered completely, instead of rigid weight classes, each dinosaur has a unique weight to it.
I'll edit the pages when I get a chance to.
Anyways, the maximum weights.
The weight system affects damage by dividing the Attacker weight by the victim weight. For example, a Shant is approximately 30% heavier than a Spino, so an attack will do 30% extra damage (I think). So a regular stomp would do 1,105 damage to a Spino, a headbutt woul…

There has been some official Isle dossiers released which can be seen here. http://imgur.com/a/Ma401 Becuase of that, i'm making a proposal that we base our information off them, including the dino's sizes as well as what they are like in the isle, which of course means that we might have to drastically change some of the info on our pages. I'm also thinking about making it so that you could view the dossiers in the infoboxes once I get the hang of the coding that is required to do so. I think this would be really helpful so that our wiki would be more reliable for information. I would like to see some of your opinions as well.Read more >

Hey guys! just wanted to hear feed back on the website! The Isle Forum
It has emoji's,reputation system,future rank titles, and much much more.
Well if some don't know the original forum for the isle is basically spammed by bots with porn and or worst links so i created this forum to be a better potential than the original a small community for us fans.Read more >
Hey guys, so i made a wiki about mods for the isle here. http://the-isle-mod.wikia.com/wiki/The_Isle_mod_Wiki Make sure to tell people about it so it can gain recognition.Read more >

Apparently, i found this wiki that this guy just made. I came over to him and said we already have this wiki, and even insisted that he comes over to us to help us out.

This is a blog post that i felt like creating. There have been some bad reviews about the game, mostly about stuff like balancing, toxic community, bad dev behavior etc. I want to know your opinion about these bad reviews and what you agree/disagree with. In my opinion, i think they are overreacting about the game, mostly because it's early access and that not everything about the game is perfect. As dev behavior, i don't think bad behavior will reflect the quality of a game. For example, the devs could treat their community very nicely, but give out a very bad game. (I'm looking at you ark). But very mean devs that you definitely wouldn't want out hang out with might deliver a very good game. See what i mean? Plus, i think the dev's behav…Read more >
This is off topic for the Isle, but I felt like making this.
Anyways, regarding speculative dinosaurs, they usually have way over estimated weights. What do I mean? Well, A. fraggilimus is estimated at 122.4 tonnes (135 tons), which is based on a 27 meter (89 foot) Diplodocus, and it seems fairly legitimate, because it basically just assumes similar proportions to a Diplodocus and scales from there. However, isometric scaling, when used to find the mass of extant animals, has been found to greatly overestimate mass. Taking this into account then, you'll find that a 58 meter (190 foot) long A. fraggilimus would weigh much less than previous estimates, still huge, but nothing record breaking. The same can be applied to other massive theoretic…Read more >
I won't go over everything, but here are just a couple I picked.
Tyrannosaurus rex - the real life largest complete specimen ("Sue") could reach 12.3 meters (40 feet) and may have tipped the scales over 10 tonnes (11 tons), though a more common size would be 11-12 meters (36-39 feet) and 6-8 tonnes (6.6-8.8 tons). The in game T. rex is 13.7 meters (45 feet), which could give a weight several tonnes more than a real Tyrannosaurus, even Sue.
Acrocanthosaurus - real life size would be 11.5 (38 feet) meters and 6.2 tonnes (6.8 tons), the game seems to get this quite well, though the length may be slightly exaggerated.
Shantungosaurus - the in game Shant seems to use fairly low end estimates of about 13-14 (43-46 feet) meters, judging by how it's …Read more >
