Whats the difference between Oblivion Lost and Shadow of Chernobyl? I constantly see both being advertised, but im confused--are these the same game? If so why a different name? Second..in an interview one of the Q & A was this: 5. We have already been told that some of the single player maps are five square kilometres in size. How large can a multiplayer map reach at most? If we created huge MP maps it wouldn’t be interesting to play on them because finding each other would take ages and be difficult. The maps are huge enough and well-balanced. Our pro-players are balancing them. 5.1 Well, we do know that the SP maps will vary from 2-5 km². Any specific figure you could provide us with referring to the MP levels? Perhaps the biggest maps will be about 600x600 meters in size. But it’s not that exact a datum. I thought STALKER was one big map--like in GTA. Apparently this is not the case if they're talking about SP maps being from 2-5km in size. Thoughts?

they are the same game... Oblivion Lost was renamed to Shadow of Chernobyl....some sites havent updated in a while

the entire zone is 30km-30km in size....and that is divided even more....they cant load the entire map at once...it would take a extremely fast computer...

20-30k? more like quad amd fx.55 cores and two GF 7800s and 8 gig of ram. nothing could load a map like that. i'm guessing it will be broken up into 1,2, and 5 k maps. 1 for the really detailed ones, 2 and five for the spare detailed ones.

yes.....im not sure how to say it......remember in GTA:VC, if you went to the other island, it would do a short load?? it will only load when your going to that area.....and it suppose to be a very short load

Oh right, I get it. Cool I guess. As long as the load times aren't longer than those in Half Life 2...They pissed me off.
