-Fixes near useless nature of current state of the ships

Instead of replacing it, why not add a second bonus to those ships? All other race’s recons have bonuses to two types of ewar, only Caldari have bonus to one.

the changes that CCP made broke Caldari Ewar…

i would have adjusted their prevalence.

ECM would have a optimal and fall off

  • short optimal (up to 20km dependent on Meta rating)
  • Long fall off (based on meta rating)
  • inside/at max optimal would be full sensor calc. sensor calc drops down to %50 at Half range of max fall off to 1% at max fall off.

ECM would have adjusted cycle and lockout times (ECM should next be 100% guarantee of a jam)

  • cycle time would be ~20/30 seconds (skill Dependent)
  • Jam time would be ~10/15 seconds (skill Dependent)
  • only 1 Moduel could be active on any given target (negates Jamming hull spam on a single target)

ECM Burst

  • would be large AOE burst with Vary short optimal with extended fall off
  • inside/at max optimal would be full sensor calc. sensor calc drops down to %50 at Half range of max fall off to 1% at max fall off.

ECCM would be scripted (treated as charges like command boosts)

  • add scripts for Sensor types (radar, Mag, Ect)
  • multi-spectrum Sensor reinforcement (give XXX in all sensor indices for a short period
  • Targeted Sensor reinforcement (gives XXX in 1 sensor index for a short period

The Caldari Ewar ships would then be re-balanced in accordance with the module changes to boost the modules in use on these hulls like other factions EWAR specs
