This is my first mod! I'm happy it is finally ready.
What's it do? Well it gives you an FTL drive, obviously.
Changes to space stage spacecraft travel speeds and distances. The detect and travel ranges on each interstellar drive upgrade have had subtle tweaks to allow for further and faster travel. No changes made to center of galaxy so beware, the center is still quite the challenge. Max drive capabilities greatly expanded.
Warp drive animation and variable speeds is enabled for a travel time based on distance covered. It took a while to tune, but it is a nice touch, if I do say so myself. It really kicks in after a few interstellar drive upgrades. (It takes a moment for the FTL to spool up, and you don't wanna smash into your destination so it ends a short ways away from your endpoint, where you finish the trip coasting on in)
Minor tweaks to ascend/descend and solar system speeds.

Disappointed that FTL technology isn't the game breaking advantage you wanted???
Then instead use the SporeDrive version. Faster, further, earlier. You can practically teleport.
Compatibility info: These mods tie into a fairly versatile file that tunes several game aspects and you may run into compatibility issues with some other mods that also use this gametuning~spaceufo~ file path, and definitely any of the mods that change interstellar drives.
Hope you enjoy!
