Description
Civ V: Communitas is a community-made expansion pack for Civilization V: BNW.

We started this project because we believe Civilization is a fantastic game, and we aim to perfect it while remaining as close to the core experience as possible. We think games should be intuitive to learn, challenging to master, and rewards should match the difficulty to complete tasks. We believe in finding balance between extremes. We set a high bar for adding new things to the game, and instead improve or replace existing objects when possible.

Communitas is a collaboration of work from dozens of authors, plus an incredible community of forumgoers on CivFanatics.com. The Latin word “communitas” means an unstructured community in which people are equal, or to the very spirit of community.

The expansion pack provides:

- A fun and realistic map script.
- New units, buildings and wonders.
- Smarter AI players.
- Balanced gameplay.
- Expanded modding tools.
- Improved interface features.
- Fixes for bugs in the core game.

I seem to lag pretty badly when AI takes their turns.... Don't know why... Otherwise I love the concept of it all.

Awsome thanks for adding to workshop. I am someone who is very experienced with using mods, however, I could not for the life of me get these mods all installed correctly when trying to do it manually.

I have heard a lot of good things about this mod (haven't gotten to trying it though). Anyone know if it works on multiplayer?

You're looking for the community patch project most likely. I'd recommend using the community patch as well as the balance patch and other components such as city state diplomacy and civ4 diplomatic features, events and decisions, and enhanced ui. You can find all of this on the civ fanatics forum. http://forums.civfanatics.com/forumdisplay.php?f=497

That's a link to the sub forum on the community patch. There is a sticky with download links as well as install instructions and info on other compatible mods.

Is this the so called "community mod" that I've been hearing of? If not could someone perhaps inform me as to where I could find it.

Are these mods multiplayer? If so, then how would I set it up?

thank you that helped a ton

Sarge: It sounds like you are not starting the game with CAT. You need to have CAT to get CEG to work properly. CEG gives the -10 penalty. CAT gives you a +10 bonus.
