So... just after summoning the Patton, I received a message that the alien device was in the last stages of construction and that I should hurry.
So... two questions:
Am I correct in thinking that this message is triggered by summoning the Patton?
Does an actual countdown begin once this message appears, after which you lose the game, or is it just for atmosphere?

And a countdown, no. It's just that if the aliens get enough parts to build the doomsday device, you lose. So I guess that could be considered a time limit, but it was already built into the game.

Additionally, there are 'ways' of slowing the game down indefinitely, which are NOT cheating or editing the game, merely oversights on the designers' part.
