Community Patch (aka Vox Populi) for Civ5 Gets a New Update

By | December 6, 2016

cpThe ever-popular Community Patch, now known as Vox Populi, has a brand new update.

Started in 2014, Vox Populi (formerly known as the “Community Balance Patch”) is a collaborative effort to improve Civilization V’s AI and gameplay. It is a collection of mods that are designed to work together seamlessly.

The core of the project, the Community Patch, is a DLL-based mod that can be used independently of all other mods in the project in order to improve your Civilization V experience. It does not modify any of the core game’s content (such as leaders or buildings), but improves AI performance and addresses a number of bugs that remained after the final Civilization V patch.

The Community Balance Overhaul (and all other elements of the project), however, expands and changes the core mechanics of the game, offering an entirely new Civilization V experience that feels and plays like an evolution of the series.

The update is available to download and discuss within its own forum in our Civilization V modding forums.
