Ruthless, fearless and confident in their righteousness, they seek to impose their views on the rest of the Sector and establish the only true (in their own opinion) regime that can lead Humanity to prosperity even in the terrible reality of the Post-Collapse.

I waited more than half a year for this, and it was worth it :)
A really well done, polished, and proper faction with extensive campaign features and custom content.

Congratulations on the release, both to Astarat and PureTilt!

Look great, cannot wait to read all the lore in this mod, look interesting, Luddic Church will have a hard time fighting 5 front war in my modlist. They're also polar opposite of FPE, a xenophobic and eugenic society, I wonder if they'll get along. I'll probably disable Fang and Draco since they're also a big players in genetic engineering.

Thanks for the awesome work!
