    This is a little off topic, just thought of it while reading the comments here..... is there a mod that turns the jump drive from a teleporter into a going fast type jump drive??... like... it makes the ship go at about 1000m/s and the ship only goes in a strait line and it can't actually hit objects... just goes very fast in a strait line.. that would be so cool, I wish jump drive was like that, I really hate that the jump drive is just a teleporter :<

    Same here, phasing through a planet is far more enjoyable than simply flicking a switch and suddenly appearing somewhere. I've used the speed mod and got up to 4000m/s and by all accounts it is far more impressive than just... whatever that effect is that the jump drive does. Really wish that that is how the jump drive was implemented... well, I can still hold out hope for some jump gates or something that might work in such a manner.

    It can be done better than that. Increase speed even further, simply ignore asteroids - don't even render them, just render planets. Then a simple raycast collision check against simple spheres. Would work just great and be a hell of a lot more interesting than the current utterly boring POP.
