They are rated by stars, being either 1, 2 or 3 stars, where 3 star missions are the most difficult and the ones that give the most , and 1 star missions being the easiet but the ones that give the least . Usually, missions are given to the player every 6 hours, however with a Mission Mule, the player gets unlimited missions instantly.
Space Zoo Edit
In the Space Zoo, missions count towards to amount of missions needed to unlock the next boss mission, as well as every three completed missions counting towards a new ship or habitat upgrade. Missions appear in 3 instantly, with the player only able to get new missions once all three missions given have been completed. In all Space Zoo missions, the player is required to collect a certain amount of a collectible exclusive to that island, such as eggs in Jurassic and vases in Olympus.
