I think you musta dreamed it...I fought leaping lizzy for hours and used wide scan, I am 100% positive you have to go out of the map and back in.
I'm just curious how you might have confirmed this so you're 100% sure. Like any other test, you must have had some kind of control subject?
When you had your map up...did you have a friend spot the Leaping Lizzie for instance and have you ESC-refresh without exiting the map?
I'm not 100% sure myself that ESC-refresh DOES or does not update the map. I could have imagined it, yes, but after many hours myself helping groups hunt ghouls in Valk I was able to see new MOBs turn up on my list WITHOUT exiting fully out of the map.
I'm interested in hearing what other results people have noticing if this is true or not.
EDIT: Heck I'll try it tonight....easy test. I'll target that NPC in WRon that walks up and down the road. I think he walks far enough in the region that his movement is unmistakable. I'll see where he is in Widescan...then scan again 5 mins later to see if his position has changed. The whole time I'll keep the map up.... I'll let you know my result.
