hope you enjoy, and i welcome any feedback

NOTE: this conflicts with Cycrows Afterburner script and his T file 447532.xml which can be remedied by reading the readme (or the Quote which is further down. the readme looks nicer so i suggest you should read it instead )
Now for the script usage info:Dioltas As Dia wrote:Gateless Jumpdrive Addon version 1.0
What it does?:
Allows any ship to jump from any position to any position
without using energy cells
Where to get it?
Buy it from the Goner Temple, 17,000,000+credits. You must have
a regular Jumpdrive installed to use it.
How does it work?:
Once the upgrade is installed, the menu "Custom..." should
appear in the command console. In this menu, you will find the
"Gateless Jumpdrive" command. Once initiated, you must pick a sector to
jump to, then the position. For maximum efficiency, it is best to
target an object (such as a ship, asteroid or station). The drive will
automatically place you a certain safety distance away from the object
targeted. Once the command has been activated and position picked, the
ship will go into Autopilot automatically and begin countdown.
Disturbing this will cancel the jump. The countdown itself cannot be
rushed via SETA.
This script's item command SS_WARE_SW_NEW16 conflicts directly with
Cycrow's Afterburner MK2 so it cant be used with it. I would not
suggest using the Afterburner script at all when using this script.
Accordingly the T file he uses in his many scripts (Bounty
Hunters/Mercenaries etc.) use the same T file as the Afterburner T
To solve this problem, open up the T file 447532.xml in the "t"
folder in your X3 directory and scroll towards the end of the file.
There you will see the lines:
<page id="17" title="wares" descr="0">
<t id="5863">Afterburner MK1</t>
<t id="5864">The MK1 Afterburner allows your smaller ships to travel
at faster speeds while its enganged, it requires energy cells to keep
<t id="5903">Afterburner MK2</t>
<t id="5904">The MK2 Afterburner allows your capitol class ship to
travel at faster speeds while its enganged, it requires energy cells to
keep it running</t>
delete that section and everthing should be alrighty.
Q: I get the message, "You do not have enough energy cells on
board" in the logbook, whats the bloody story???
A: The cargo space required for the jump is too small. While
the addon does not use energy cells, it still requires the space that
they would normally fill up to do that jump. Solution is to buy more
Cargo Bay extensions or pick a smaller jump.
Q: How come it doesnt use energy cells?
A: Well to make a Gateless Jumpdrive script that still uses
energy cells is making an adjustment too small. I think its better this
way (and the price offsets the advantage). That and it is a shameful
rip of the script used in LV's cheat script (though i couldnt have
wrote it better myself!)
Q: It is not showing up at the Goner Temple!!! Why???
A: That is because it is conflicting with another script/T
file. See above for the conflicting files. Other than that PM me with
all relevant information and i will try to help.
Q: Can other ships use it to?
A: Other player-owned ships can use it if commanded to (they
will not use it on their own AI!). This can performed anywhere, even
Out Of Sector (OOS). AI ships will not use this item.
Q: This is a bloody cheat script, why the hell should i use it?
A: If you consider it a cheat, then by all means press the
"delete" button and dont use it, otherwise have fun!
