Chip's Challenge 2 Level Pack 1
Several more discussions on the subject took place, until October 1, 2018, when Tyler Sontag started a survey regarding the potential set to determine, among other things, how many levels the set should have, what its name should be, and what levels should be allowed. Following the results of the survey, submissions were opened on October 31, 2018. Following further discussions, the full rules for submissions were posted on February 5, 2019. On February 14, it was announced that submissions would close on May 31.
Submissions closed on June 1, 2019; a total of 1,406 levels by 35 designers were submitted. However, a few designers later withdrew some of their levels from consideration; as a consequence, exactly 1,400 appeared in voting.
From June 1 to July 12, there was a "fixing period" where designers could make slight modifications to their levels to fix busts or just to make small aesthetic improvements. Voting began on July 16 and ultimately closed on June 7, 2020. Voting was initially scheduled to end on May 2, 2020, but following unexpected downtime of the voting site, the deadline was extended to May 16. Following further issues, and lack of cooperation from voting administrator H2O, the voting site was transferred to bitbusters.club, and the deadline was extended again to June 7.
On September 25, it was announced that the final set would be released on October 9, 2020. The trailer was released on September 27 and the final set as planned on October 9, 2020.
List of CC2LP1 levels
Voting was hosted on a private server owned by H2O, before it was moved to bitbusters.club, with voters logging in through David Stolp's site.
As with CCLP1 and CCLP4, the levels were randomly sorted in voting packs of 50 levels each; level designers were removed to prevent bias. C2G scripting was used to randomize the level order, so that no two voters would get the same level order. This new voting method was negatively received by several members of the community, so fixed-order packs were also made available.
Unlike CCLP1 and CCLP4 voting, for which packs were gradually released over time, for CC2LP1 all 28 voting packs were released at once. Each voter was first presented with a randomly-selected pack. In order to unlock another randomly-selected pack, they must vote on at least 90% of each pack already unlocked (45 levels per pack).
Tyler Sontag is the leader of the staff. The rest of the staff was announced on February 14, 2019.
Zane Kuecks joined the staff on February 26, but was later removed due to lack of participation.

- CC2LP1 is the first level pack not to contain secret levels or a Cypher level, due to CC2 not supporting passwords. CC2 levels can have "secret exits" leading further in the set with advanced C2G scripting, but this avenue was not explored.
