Because RtP is a very complex mod, you need to follow the Discord link and familiarize yourself with the content, including compatibilities and troubleshooting.


Rise to Power is an overhaul mod that aims to add significant depth to the game, by introducing new mechanics, overhauling base systems, and adding a plethora of world-building aspects.
Information about specific components can be located on the Discord server, the Wiki, or in-game in the Civilopedia or through the added Tutorials.

The mod is provided as is, and it is your responsibility to check the Discord server for troubleshooting methods. If you follow these, and you still run into issues, then you are unlikely to be able to use the mod.

Civ V now feels like a complete game. Rise to Power adds the depth and immersion I’ve been searching for. Thanks for this JFD!
The definitive best mod for Civ V with more depth and complexity than an official DLC. I check if a new version of RtP is out almost daily.
Piety is now viable with this mod. Not to mention the add-on that are priceless. Government feature is so awesome.
