Vox Populi: A Community Patch Project
3.3.1 (March 26, 2023)
3.3.1 (March 26, 2023)
Started in 2014, Vox Populi is a collaborative effort to improve Civilization V's AI and gameplay. Vox Populi is a collection of mods (see below) that are designed to work together seamlessly. The core of the project, the Community Patch, is a DLL-based mod that can be used independently of all other mods in the Project in order to improve your Civilization V experience. It does not modify any of the core game's content (such as leaders or buildings), but improves AI performance and addresses a number of bugs that remained after the final Civilization V patch. The Community Balance Overhaul (and all other elements of the Project), however, expands and changes the core mechanics of the game, offering an entirely new Civilization V experience that feels and plays like an evolution of the series.
- Civilization V (.279 version)
- Gods and Kings Expansion
- Brave New World Expansion
- All Leader DLC
- Ancient Wonders DLC
- Windows 7-10

- Enhanced User Interface:
Enhanced User Interface offers a complete rework of Civ 5's user interface. This mod is not required by the Community Patch Project, but most Project users prefer it. It is included with the Automatic Installer, but will have to be installed manually if you wish to use it with just the Community Patch. Please note that your decision to use (or not use) EUI changes what Project files you should install, and may include additional steps (such as the deletion of lua files).

This download includes all files, and will properly set up your installation by clearing your cache, deleting old files, and intelligently selecting installation locations. You will be asked to choose your preferred installation during the installation process, so please make sure to read all instructions!
Vox Populi is compatible with most mods, except those that modify the .dll.If you are using a mod that contains a .dll, it will cause problems!
Report a bug or ask for help! Our bug reports thread is the best place for you to post questions or concerns about your mod installation. Please note that bug reports not submitted on this page, or the project's Github page, will likely be ignored!
