    My two cents:

    CP => An Unofficial Patch

    CBP => Balance of Power

    Civ: NEO (NeverEnding Overhaul) has everything:

    It's descriptive, it's an easy and market name, it's latin, it's funny, it isn't cocky, ...
    who can offer more?

    I kind of like Balance of Power. It has a nice double-meaning to it. Although it makes it sound as though there's something imbalanced about my Rise to Power :p

    I'd stand behind leaving the Community Patch name, though - unlike the CBP, there isn't really much room for contention over it being the AI-/bug-fixing mod. And because of the Rule of One DLL, a definitive name like this isn't the worst idea.

    Both your Rise to Power and the other modpack on this site Call to Power. This is made even worse of the 'Community' part stays around as the other modpack is called Community Call to Power Project :D

    It plays nicely in my headcanon, too :p The CPP taking up the role as Global Modding Police Force, checking the power of the JFD and Janboruta Empire - oh! Call it Pax Moddicana :D

    As mentioned earlier you could technically just take some of these badass sounding non-sense word-combinations, I mean that to me is kinda what Balance of Power sounds like anyways. Some examples would be:

    A New Horizon
    Rise of Empires
    Trade and Conquest
    Trade and Industry
    Trade and Treachery
    Empires of Industry
    Clash of Empires(/Industry)(/Trade)
    The Sun Never Sets
    And so on.

    If the word power is a "problem" here, a synonym can be used maybe. I was thinking of the word might, so it would become:

    Balance of Might

    It sounds not as good to the ear for me, but takes away the confusing part (if there are no mods that have the word might in it). And just to play with your minds, how about we give it a twist:

    Might of Balance

    I can just imagine it.

    Civ 5: Roover and the 51st street.


    EDIT: Meh, reality sucks :D



    How about Project Phoenix? Arrogant as all hell and not really that descriptive, but it sounds pretty cool.

    Project Phoenix was already a thing long ago, although I don't think it ever came to fruition. It was something to do with Moriboe and Pouakai (probably Sukritact, too), but I know next to nothing about it. Not an attempt to dissuade - just wanted to point it out.

    Project Phoenix have been a thing in a bunch of other games as well, didn't find anything on civ5 and project phoenix however, and I still don't, silly google.


    Right to Rule?
    Eternal Empires?
    Birth of a Nation?

    Man, I'm running out of ideas, never thought I'd see that day.


    Commerce and Industry?
    New Day Rising?
    Commerce and Warfare?
    Captains of Capitalism?
    Build the World?
    Titans of History?
    Empires of the Sun?
    Dawn of Empires?
    Dawn of History?

    Shamelessly bumping this; I don't want it to simply go unnoticed by Gazebo (and Funak) >->

    We could choose now any of the most popular names discussed:

    Civ5:CPOP (Community Patch and Overhaul Project)
    CP:Full Pack
    CP:Complete/Complete Overhaul
    Ultimate Overhaul Project
    Civ V Reborn
    Civ V:NEO
    Vox Populi
    Balance of Power

    EDIT: Seriously, if CPP has worked so far, I believe any name will do.

    I wonder if there's another P word that can replace power to keep the CBP acronym. Like Princes or Parliament or Production.
