Jump Drive Enhanced

Adds a "second level" Jump Drive tech with a shorter windup time.

Why make this? Because Psi Jump Drive is strictly better than regular Jump Drive, being the same except for 50% greater range. This benefits Spiritualists greatly. The new Accelerated Jump Drive this mod adds is tied to a technology that Materialists will have an easier time getting. While Psi Jump Drive still wins on range, Accelerated Jump Drive winds up in half the time (7.5 days vs. 15 days).

Warning: Have not really tested this much. Please let me know how it works. It should show up pretty readily for Materialist empires that have original-recipe Jump Drives (a prereq) and an engineering researcher with the usual uber-traits (Curator, Spark of Genius, Maniacal).

Wow this is really good. Works like a charm.

Eventually, yeah. But I want to at some point take a closer look at the point of this mod. Originally, it was a balance against Psi Jump Drive. But since 1.5, it seems that Psi Jump Drive isn't a normal tech you can just randomly get. So maybe this should not be either? Dunno, but I can't imagine any reason why this would not work with 1.6. That warning doesn't indicate that it does not work, simply that the version number is out of date.

I have the mod installed and have had no problems so far (I began as a warp drive spacefaring civ).
@LittleRaskol, will you be updating the mod to the latest 1.6 Adams update? Thanks in advance.

Are you saying that ships with the drive this mod adds can't actually move between systems?
