Home of the Civ V Unofficial Patch, G&K Enhanced, and Vanilla Enhanced Mod


“Art is never finished, only abandoned.”

Civ V: Communitas is a community-made expansion pack for Civilization V.

Communitas is a collaboration of work from dozens of authors, plus an incredible community of forumgoers on CivFanatics.com. Click “Install” at right to try it out.

Projects are never perfect, and I wish I’d been able to do more, but I feel we put our best effort into it as a community. Great job everyone!

It’s been a thrilling four years working on this. Steam says I’ve worked over 5,000 hours on Communitas, which is wild to think about, and I feel that was time well spent. It’s provided invaluable lessons for my game design career. The most important part for me was the community we built. So many game developers distance themselves from their audience through community reps and press releases. I feel direct conversations between designers and players helps build a better game, like we did here.

I don’t have much free time to mod games anymore, sadly. This is likely farewell. I’m spending most of my time working on indie game development now. I might end up making a small Beyond Earth mod anyway. What can I say, I just can’t help myself. It’s so much fun!

Thank you, everyone who’s helped and played Communitas over the years. I’m grateful!

  1. Hi Thal,

    Thank you very much for creating this wonderful mod and for all the hard work you have invested in it. I have had a great fun during the countless hours playing it, and I would probably have left Civ5 without it long time ago.

    Good luck and all the best with your future projects!
