They destroyed your home. They killed your family. You are not a violent captain by nature, but now you seek revenge. Do whatever it takes to stop the rebel fleet!

Descent into Darkness is a complete overhaul modification for FTL.
You do not start with a single ship loadout and play the game regularly.
Instead, you are given a barebones ship hull and pick your starting gear, crew, augments, everything.
There are 72 possible starting combinations - 4x more than the number of default ships in vanilla FTL!
Along with this unique change to the game mechanics, there are many, many graphical changes - from the loading screen to the main menu, the hangar, star map...
Naturally, this mod comes with unique weapons with some rather special animations.
Goes without saying that all of the stuff like gibs, room images, cloak graphic etc etc is all done, of course.
This mod is not intended to be compatible with a lot of other things.
Anything with events is probably out of the question.
Background system/planet images should be ok.
Weapon graphic mods might work. Other stuff probably won't.
If you insist on running it alongisde other mods, make SURE you load this LAST in the list! Any part of this mod's content being overwritten will likely mess up the whole thing.
Do not waste your time leaving comments about balance or lack thereof. I do not care.
If it doesn't work for you then try reinstalling your FTL (check that it's the latest version), GMM etc. I have tested this on several computers, it works.
Finally, I would like to state that this will be the last mod I release. This is a large part of why I put so much effort into making it extra special. I hope you all enjoy it and remember me for it!

A couple people have made 'AE update' versions of this mod.
I was not involved in these, I haven't checked what's in them, and I hold no responsibility for what they contain.
I'm only linking them here for your convenience.
