Chip's Challenge Level Pack 3
|Number of levels||149|
|Release||24 December 2010|
|CC1 • CCLP1 • CCLP2 • CCLP3 • CCLP4|
Chip's Challenge Level Pack 3, often abbreviated as CCLP3, is the second community level pack for Chip's Challenge released on 24 December 2010. The 149 levels are taken from the many user-created level sets available on the Internet. Unlike the preceding Chip's Challenge Level Pack 2, this set is compatible with both the MS and Lynx versions of the game. The set definition of compatibility is when neither the MS or Lynx solution is significantly different or more difficult than the other.
Levels submissions for the next community level pack started in September 2006, but the CCLP3 project itself did not begin until February 12, 2010. As with CCLP2 voting, two categories were defined on the ballot: fun and difficulty. The 147 levels voted most fun became part of the final set, while the distribution of votes for difficulty were used to determine the general order of CCLP3, with slight alterations as deemed necessary. On December 13, 2010, the release date of the set was confirmed as midnight GMT on December 24, 2010. On December 18, 2010, CCLP3 Leaks were announced.

Level 1 contest
Unlike CCLP2, the first level of CCLP3 was voted on separately, and is expected to be a review of the basic, and some advanced, concepts of Chip's Challenge. There were eleven levels in this ballot, each of which were nominated by other Chipsters. Its voting began on April 30.
The level in Bold won the contest. Levels with Italics are the ones that still got into CCLP3 through the regular voting process.

Cypher level contest
Like CC1 and CCLP2, CCLP3 has a Cypher level. Level designers could create their own level with three passwords and submit it to the CCLP3 staff, whilst keeping it a secret. Like the level one contest, it's voting began on April 30. The identities of the level designers were kept a secret until the voting ended.
The level in Bold won the contest.
