The world map is shown in the game when the player is not currently in a mission. It shows the following information:
The player can take the following actions from the world map:
The number of “hours remaining” shown on the world map screen is the number of in-game hours before either the Research Facility mission in the extended campaign, or otherwise the OMNI Mainframe mission. These hours are “used up” when you travel to a mission; it is also possible to travel to a mission when the journey time is more than the number of hours remaining, in which case the hours remaining are reduced to 0.
In addition to the number of in-game hours remaining, the world map screen also shows a real-time clock, but this is purely cosmetic — the in-game hours remaining only change when you travel to a mission.
