I have found limited access to a snapshot of chipv's Map Database via the Wayback Machine. Go to http://web.archive.org , enter http://chipv.freehostia.com/ in the search field and press the Take Me Back button. The snapshot does not give you everything, but there is some information that can be recovered.

Happy to help. It would be a shame for all that information to have been lost.

I posted this as a suggestion years ago. Glad to see somebody did it, even though CC didn't. It's good work, but not nearly where it could be if it was integrated into the site properly. Just goes to show that the best part of CC isn't CC, it's the add-ons. Without the add-ons, CC is a waste of time. Well, okay, it's a waste of time anyway.

Thanks, going to update the data. :)

If someone else find something wrong or soemthing that can be updated, please post here.
I consider the current version like a Beta version, so all contributes to refine/improve it are really welcome! :)

Your pages should be linked to here:

And should also be linked here:

And should replace this:
Click image to enlarge.

It should be the most prominent part of CC when new visitors come to the site. The maps make the game. The gameplay styles determine how you play the game on the maps. I can't believe this information is buried so far down.

You should include links to the forums where the maps where developed.
You should include basic strategy on the maps so n00bs don't get farmed.
I think it would be cool if there was a page like the current "browse maps" page that shows all the maps at once.

a table of relevent info that could be sorted high to low, low to high would be good.

it would have total number of territories, starting territories for 2/3/4/5/6/7/8.

maybe some other info.

we were saying about add some more items.
The special features, number of territories and starting drop are already there, just you can find them on the map pages.
If there's interest I can add them also in different way, i think you would like to have them all in one place to pick up maps considering a X criteria to play games or run a tournament. Right?
Then I think that there are different ways to implement this.
I think i can produce a couple of draft during the weekend so we can decide what way it's the best to follow and you can understand better what i'm saying. ;)
Now, what elements you would like to see in those pages/list?
Number of regions, special features (if yes which one?), starting drop (what criteris do you need for this?), anything else?

remember just one thing, i want to keep it simple....too tricky things require lot of time and they are hard to be updated or changed if necessary O:)

Let me know :)

all these things you added there. I think that something as recommended settings could be fine. I found much maps where are killer neutrals, but killer neutrals do not work with Trench. and some of maps which have killer neutrals lost with trench their aim. for example King´s Court - here is King as killer neutral which is only one region which can assault any Castle. in trench it is not possible.

so somehting like this would be great.

Nobodies

What would be great is if these number of territories could be added as a sortable feature to the "new game", "join a game" and your gallery pages.
If it can't be added to these pages, then perhaps it can be added in to the database of the map names drop list field as in:
Classic (42)
Doodle Earth (18)
so that every map has the number of territories included behind the name.
This would enable players to chose maps for play from the number of territories also so they could see if the game is likely to be short or long play.
Just another suggestion for improvement.

someone recently wanted to run a tournament on maps where everyone started with 8 terits. i had to view each and every map to create a list. so for me i would like to see total terits and starting terits. maybe a yes/no for special features. if the map's name was a hyperlink it would be easy to flick to the map for an indepth look at the special gameplay
