    Hey all,

    Something I've been thinking about lately. The CBP needs a new name. Yes, I know, its virtually venerable at this point, but it's also confusing. Referring to the overall package as the Community Patch Project is equally confusing. I'm to blame, I know. But still, we need to fix it. Brainstorm and help me pick something out for the CBP and CPP to replace them. Bonus points if you can use the same acronyms. :)

    How about GAP - Gazebo Alone Project.

    On a more serious note I have no idea, I though the name was kinda awkward and confusing from the start, especially since like half the modprojects are called community something. However at that time I didn't want to impose so I kept quiet. I'm also terrible at names and even worse at acronyms so I'm just going to sit here and loudly judge all suggestions instead.

    I like how XCOM has "The Long War." Short, definitive and cool. I have absolutely no ideas though lol.

    Civ5 Complete Overhaul Mod or something that better reflects the grand scope of this project.

    How about "Comprehensive Repair" for the CP, and "Comprehensive Rethink" for the CBP?

    We all know it's actually just you doing stuff under different aliases, no need to hide it.

    Alright, some good thoughts here. What about:

    Community Patch and Overhaul Project. Civ5:CPOP. Close enough to what we have now, and a little more descriptive of what the CP and CBP each (respectively) do.

    Community Patch can remain the same, but I think we can (and should) do with a fancier name for the CBP, that already encompasses CP and doesn't need to directly mention it.

    Something like:

    • Ultimate Civilization V: Community Overhaul (UC5)
    • Civ5+: Community Overhaul (C5+)
    • Civilization V: Masters' Edition (ME)
    • Maximo Civilizationis V (MC5)
    • Civilization V: Rebirth [C5R]

    I don't mind if it sounds completely pretentious, in fact that's even better for marketing purposes.

    I think that CP should stay as "Community Patch", because when I buy an old game with a lot of mods, I always try to find the unofficial patch (sometimes even before playing vanilla).

    For CBP, I have :
    • Complete Balance Project
    • Civilisation V.5
    • Ultimate Mod
    • Better than Firaxis
    • Better than Vanilla
    • Vanilla++
    • Madatory Upgrade
    • Strategy and Tactic
    • Justice and Prosperity
    • Choose your Way
    • Equal Opportunities
    • Resurrection
    • Stand the Test of Time

    Reborn (or Rebirth) seems good too

    Need something catchy to catch the attention of the *masses* ;D

    How about:

    CiV: Reloaded
    CiV: Resurrection
    Civilization V++
    Civilization 5.5

    I'm leaning more towards something like jma's suggestion, the project needs a snazzy name, it needs to sound good rather than be very descriptive, people are attracted to snazzy name. If someone wants a description (and honestly community patch project isn't really describing the mod either, it's describing the development process), they can look it up.


    As for the name itself, you usually go with either one powerful word or three words where one is rather unimportant (A, the, an, on, and so on) sometimes you add/remove an(other) unimportant word, but anyways that's the usual way of doing it.

    Examples:
    The Long War
    A Realm Reborn
    The Burning Crusade
    Cataclysm
    Legion
    Wrath of the Lichking
    Heavensward



    The current title we're running got three important words and your suggested one have four.
