Not to be confused with Chip's Challenge 1.

Chip's Challenge Level Pack 1, often abbreviated as CCLP1, is the third community level pack released on March 28, 2014. Although the name CCLP1 suggests it is the first of a series of level packs, this level pack was released after both CCLP2 and CCLP3. The name is instead a reference to the fact that CCLP1 is designed specifically for beginners to learn and experience the basics of the game before moving on to the more difficult CCLP2 and CCLP3.

Part of the motivation of designing CCLP1 for beginners is due to the legal status of the original Chip's Challenge 1 level set. The game itself can no longer be legally obtained and the original copyrighted level pack cannot be freely distributed outside of the game. CCLP1 addresses this problem as a free, community-created level pack which players can use with free alternate game engines like Tile World.

CCLP1 was released a week up from the original release date after members of the community solved five puzzles related to CCLP1 on the community forum CC ZoneA trailer was released on March 23, 2014 showcasing some of the levels in CCLP1 as a reward for solving these puzzles.

Title Selection[edit]

There has been some debate as to whether this level pack should actually be titled "CCLP1" or something else, mainly to avoid confusion with CC1 - the original game and levelset. Alternative names such as "CCLP0" and "TWLP1" have been suggested. However, the name CCLP1 has stood the test of time and as of 2019 the majority of the community is in favor of retaining the tile CCLP1.

Staff[edit]

J.B. Lewis was appointed CCLP1 staff coordinator after a community vote at the end of August 2011. The community was also in favor of allowing the coordinator to appoint the remaining staff. Accordingly, a staff list was announced a couple of weeks later. The list of staff members at the time of the set's release were as follows:

Name Role
J.B. Lewis Staff Coordinator
Dave Varberg Staff Speaker
The Architect Content Creator
James Anderson Webmaster
Tom Patten Voting Coordinator
Rock Généreux MS Playtester
Shane Climenhaga MS Playtester
Tyler Sontag Lynx Playtester
Paul Gilbert Lynx Playtester

Level Pack Design and Assembly[edit]

As with all community-created level packs, the plan was for Chipsters to vote on levels from custom level sets and select the best 149. The special introductory nature of this set demanded levels that were similar in design to those from CC1, i.e. levels with aesthetically pleasing and consistent design, and levels without difficult puzzles. The first few levels are "lesson" levels that teach new players what each tile does.

Like CC1, the level set is compatible with both the Lynx and MS rulesets. Suggestions that levels also conform to some or all "pedantic" Lynx rules were considered, but voted against, as it was felt that this would be unnecessarily restrictive.[1]

The following levels were confirmed to be in the set prior to its release, revealed by the CCLP1 leaks.

Other levels confirmed in the official CCLP1 trailer:

Voting Process[edit]

To narrow down the levels that appeared on the ballot, the staff performed a pre-voting elimination. The "whitelist" was then finalized with inputs from the community: "limbo" levels that were fixed by their designers, and "blacklisted" levels that were nominated by at least 2 people (other than the designer), were re-considered for the whitelist.

CCLP1 voting was being conducted on the community forums at CC Zone. Tom Patten was appointed Voting Coordinator.

There were a couple of key changes in the voting mechanism compared to that used for CCLP2 and CCLP3, namely:

  1. Voters needed to provide only a single rating ranking each level (no separate "difficulty" rating)
  2. The submitted levels were grouped randomly into different level packs for voters to play and vote on.

The level packs were available for download from CC Zone as well as the Yahoo group.
