Gameplay[]

The available game modes in the game are:

Career - This type of mode handles all features in-game such as funds and reputation.

Science - This type of mode handles some features excluding some features from Career such as Funds, but acts like Career mode.

Sandbox - Features from Career/Science are removed and there are no limitations into what you do.
