As far as I am aware there are supposed to be 56 areas in the Game. But I can only find 51.
Spoiler:
 
. Does anyone know where the extra 5 areas are please?
Thanks and regards, TrueB.

From a quick count I make it 52 53* separate maps. Let me know if I have missed any...

*EDIT: Thanks Sword and TrueB for reminders about F1. The Arena, Norman's secret room in Agroprom and the Dead City exit tunnel also added.... and removed again! (Having looked closer, these areas are actually hidden below the surface of their parent maps.)

From my own notes there's also Facility F-1, and maybe Lab X-14 at some point... study

Hi pchester, thank you pchester, for going to the trouble of providing a list which for the curious might indeed be a spoiler

Hi pchester, there is also a rather strange one that occurs in, iirc in battle with a controller

Hi TrueB,

Sorry, I don't recall a hidden area in Yantar that has its own map. I remember Kruglov's task in the green wagon as being relatively uneventful apart from the usual annoying mutants.

Are you thinking of

Yes that's the one. I knew there was one but wasn't sure which one. I have not played the other one. I agree 56, because whatever their size the definition seems imo: a transition as part of play is required in at least one direction, that comes up with the loading screen. So eg Clear Sky base would not count. Is this what you mean?

The Clear Sky base can only be reached by portal, but it is actually a fenced-off corner of the Swamps map. If you use the "demo fly" mode you can see the whole area....

Zaton is called Backwater in StalkerSoup. You can find the Backwater map at top left of the main Zone map.

Hi Pchester, really apart from the woosh sound, the Clear Sky Base portal is the same as those of the "gauntlet" that MO runs after leaving the 2nd part of CNPP. So it would not count imo. I think the Areas that the loading screen comes up for, are the correct ones. The one with the controller qualifies because the method of escape leads to a loading screen.
Regards and happy hunting, TrueB.

Hi TrueB,
Yes, you are right. The "Entering the Zone" loading screen is probably the best sign that you are entering a new map.

Some of the 'maps' in my list do not have loading screens, so it is likely that they are actually hidden in some corner of the 'parent' map. Having looked again at the three additional areas that I added to my original map list (The Arena, Norman's secret room in Agroprom and the Dead City exit tunnel) they are all actually hidden areas below the "ground" in the main map, so I need to remove them from the list again! Ho hum...

Hi, guys... here Ikaruss again.
I having enjoyed this mod again, although I see that there are not many updates.
Even so, it is enjoyed.

Anyway, I have this query, since I come across this map (I assume old version, 2.1), of an area that is not in these latest versions.

And as I think I already told you, I have been using the reference maps, to adapt a tabletop role-playing game.
I can't show you some mixes, because it happened to be too large files, but...
I just leave you a couple of samples.

Spoiler:
 


Anyway, back to the previus subject, I'm interested to know about these maps:


Number of maps in the Zone? K98sVT8

Well, only three, the fourth map, I already played it, in its corresponding mod, the Valley of Whispers.

But I would be interested in being able to see and play the remaining maps, the one from Spatial Bubble, the one from Kurchatov 37, and the one from Polissya aka Woodland.
And I can't any info on internet about these maps.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Ikaruss

Thanks for showing us these four maps

pchester is one of the best qualified to comment on them but, as the developers have recently been discussing and rationalising all the maps, there's been no mention of them being included in StalkerSoup at the moment

They may be on course to be assimilated in the future, but this would depend on their copyright, and permissions being requested and granted

There's also the problem of the game still being 32-bit, and how much more can be squeezed out of an already overburdened engine with a 3Gb RAM limit. Which is why the focus is on getting the new 64-bit engine working...

There will be a new update soon, and the devs are working towards it, though there's no set date yet

But one improvement will be the inclusion and descriptions of the 31 Locations (maps) missing from the Encyclopedia, in order to define every map currently in the game... study

StalkerSoup already has 53+ maps to explore, but I think most of us would like to see even more new areas added at some point. However, as Sword says, there are copyright permissions and technical issues to consider, as well as the task of populating new maps with interesting characters and stories.

There are several other STALKER mods that do include different maps, including the original versions of Cordon, Garbage and Radar from before developer GSC were forced to cut them down for the published game. Whether these maps will eventually find their way into StalkerSoup remains to be seen, but hopefully some will appear in player-produced StalkerSoup DLCs in the future.

Incidentally, in the 'Things I Never Knew' department, I just learned from that bastion of Truth and Knowledge Wikipedia® that S.T.A.L.K.E.R. stands for "Scavengers, Trespassers, Adventurers, Loners, Killers, Explorers and Robbers". Seems rather a forced acronym if true, but I suppose it does encompass most of the factions that you are likely to find in the Zone...

Hi pchester, interesting interpretation of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. but in my opinion, E could equally be Environmentalists or Ecologists such as Clear Sky and the Scientists like Sak and Kruglev.
