I don’t know if you brought me good luck or what, but I got 16 NMTs planning to go to a bunch of islands to find the scorpion island. After reading this, the first island I went to was scorpion island. Mind blown lol

Making your own scorpion island doesn't seem to work anymore. Too many common spawns, including hermit crab taking spawn slots.
