Hi,

Apologies if simple question, but can someone explain the relationship between the number of minutes to orders compared to
minutes elapsed and remains ?

Because the number of minutes to orders is always greater than elapsed and remains.

Have played many hours of game without really understanding the relationship !

Many thanks.

The minutes to orders should be the amount of time to your next orders entry phase. Time elapsed is the total time elapsed for the scenario. Time remaining is the amount of time left until scenario end. Hope that is what you need.

I maybe missing a big concept here, but my question was that the minutes to order phase can be more than the minutes to elapse
or remaining ?

Can you get a screen shot of that? Maybe I'm not understanding the part of the UI with the info.

Under the "Minutes to ____ Orders" display, the "elapsed" and "remaining" are formatted as HH:MM. So "2:35 elapsed, 4:55 remaining" would be 2h 35min into the scenario, with 4h 55min until the time limit is reached.
