The top box shows the mission description, type, and current phase.
The middle box shows the current number of mission members, as well as the minimum and maximum allowed for the mission. There's a list of the names of mission members and the tasks they're currently performing. If the user clicks on a member in the list, the person's info window will open.
The bottom box shows a button name of the vehicle used in the mission. If the user clicks on the button, the vehicle info window will open. Below that the vehicle's current status and speed are displayed as well as the distance to the next navpoint as well as the total distance traveled
Some types of missions will display additional information when selected.
|Mission Tool: Mining Mission Info|

The estimated trade profit for the starting settlement, as well as its actual negotiated trade profit, are displayed above the relevant tables in units of value points.
|Mission Tool: Building Construction Mission Info|
The construction mission displays the current construction stage with a progress bar showing its progress towards completion.
|Mission Tool: Navpoints Tab|
The Navpoint tab panel shows information about the mission's navpoint destinations.
The mission navpoints are marked by blue flags on the map. Directional arrow buttons on the edges of the map will recenter the map to their respective direction. Below the map is a list of the mission's navpoints. If a mission on the list is selected, the map is recentered on that navpoint.

|Edit Mission Dialog|
The Edit Mission dialog allows the user to edit a current mission.
The mission description text can be edited at the top.
The action dropdown has one or more of the following actions that can be taken, based on the mission's current situation:
The members table lists all current mission members.
If there are people at the mission's current location who can be added as members, the Add Members button is enabled. Pressing the Add Members button will open a dialog listing available people to add to the mission. One or more can be selected from the list and added to the mission.
The Remove Members button will remove any members selected in the members list from the mission. If the mission is currently at a settlement, the removed members will remain at the settlement. If the mission is currently away from a settlement, the removed members will remain in the rover, but will not be a part of the mission. If all mission members are removed, the mission will end and the rover emergency beacon will be turned on if the mission is away from a settlement.
The Modify button at the bottom of the Edit Mission dialog will close the dialog, commit any changes made to the mission and unpause the simulation.
The Cancel button at the bottom of the Edit Mission dialog will close the dialog, not make any changes to the mission and unpause the simulation.
