Civ V Reborn sounds pretty cool
I am against Civ 5 Reborn because it gives me traumatic war flashbacks of Dota 2, where Reborn update did precisely nothing except adding 50 million bugs
Civ 5: Rebirth
Civ 5: Resurrection
Civ 5: Reincarnated
Civ 5: Revival
Civ 5: Renovated
Civ 5: Enhanced Balance
Civ 5: Advanced Balance
Civilization: Big Pimpin'
PLUMS of course.
Patch Lovely Usurper Made in Secrecy
Civ, But Perfect?
For keeping the abbreviation CBP, what about :
Civilization: Balance or Predominance
or a slight variation to it:
Civilization: Balance above Predominance
I think CPOP is a bit too bulky.
CP: Full Pack just sounds odd.
CP: Complete Overhaul sounds bland.
Ultimate Overhaul Project sounds a bit grandiose.
Reborn sounds okay.
I'm extremely partial to NEO (Never-Ending Overhaul).
Vox Populi sounds pretty cool.
Balance of Power sounds pretty good, but it's lacking... something.
Someone asked for my opinion on the NEO matter earlier, so I guess I'll share it.
I think the acronym sounds kinda silly (that's not really a problem however).
I think that "Never Ending Overhaul" sounds extremely silly and probably sends the wrong message. I assume the message you want to send is that this project isn't going to be abandoned, while the message it actually sends is that the project is never actually going to be finished, which just sounds like we can't balance it properly.
Reborn is far from being my top choice but it's better than any descriptive name in my opinion.
People need to think outside of their comfort zone. I think the main reason people want a descriptive name is really because they're already used to it. As soon as it gets changed people will go "oh yeah, it did sound long-winded and boring".
You just pointed the funny thing about it. Come on, it's a joke!
Thanks for the critique; at least I know that it was noticed. I thought it was too fitting to go unconsidered.
Moving on - What about Civ V: Remastered?
Remastered implies that you're just upgrading the game's graphics/sound.
Again, the word descriptive is confusing. I would consider both "Gods and Kings" and "Brave New World" as 'descriptive', and I don't consider either of them to be long-winded or boring.
That's why I treated it like a joke and ignored it, but someone brought it up again.
And in case I'm misunderstanding you, No, I don't think having a joke as the title would be a very good idea.
Those are not descriptive at all. What does "Brave New World" describe? That the new world is brave?
I'm talking about words that describe, literally, what the mod is.
Brave new world describes the expansionpack, telling you that the expansionpack is about ideologies (the new world in this context).
Same thing with Gods and Kings being about religious.
It reads as a poetic name, without knowing the expansion you would never know this was what it was about.
I think it's pretty obvious what I mean when I say descriptive, especially since I specified it when I made the polls, not to mention you agreed with me that those kinds of names are bad. This is kind of a pointless semantic nitpick.
Perhaps that phrase is more of an English culture thing and doesn't translate well into other cultures, ie. Brazilian, but it basically means entering the future where things are now different and perhaps foreboding.
It is a reference to Aldous Huxley's book of the same name that is all about a future world full of new ideas and inventions.
I know. It's still poetic/metaphoric - as in, not literally stating what it refers to. Unlike "community balance patch", for instance.
That being a joke doesn't imply it couldn't be the real name. It's a mod, not a commercial AAA game. Aren't you doing this for fun? Besides, it sounds cool.
Never Ending, could also mean that we never tire playing this.
Separate names with a comma.
