Minecraft Scoreboard Based Skill Tree System Tutorial

This minecraft invention allows you to to add a ‘skill point’ or ‘skill tree’ system to Minecraft RPG / Adventure maps. It uses the new Minecraft Scoreboard system to allow the player to build their character over the course of a game by assigning skill points into skill trees.

Minecraft skill trees can be created based on any game mechanic or indeed, anything the creator wishes to imagine. Because they are largely assigned via Command Block, you can have game based skill trees like an alchemy skill tree or a mining skill tree, but you could equally create a reading skill tree or a ‘dancing’ skill tree. It doesn’t much matter.

This skill tree system can be used to make the player work towards certain rewards (for example, reaching level five of mining could result in being awarded an unbreaking pick) or it can simply be used to urge your players to complete certain challenges in a way that ‘customizes’ their character. The possibilities are very rich and exciting for anyone wanting to add new dimensions to minecraft adventure maps.
