Calculator using the XP System
As shown by the title, this is a small simple calculator using XP. This may be the only one out there, unless
there is one in another language that I cannot seem to find, but so far it seems to be the only one, so
I want to share it to everyone else to use. It is a very simple concept to use. This calculator is fully stackable and is only limited to how much space you need.
Basically each button adds/subtracts an amount of levels from your character, depending on
what number you choose. The levers change whether the right number is positive or negative.
The reason I had created it to only do one number at a time for each side is because I wanted
a better visual on what you are about to add/subtract before you got it, it also stops the system
from adding/subtracting too much than you actually has wished for by clicking the button
one more time than you wanted.
You may ask: "Why do I start with 10 levels to do this?" The reason is because with the XP System, it
is impossible to get negative levels. But you can still have the player start out with a large
amount of Levels such as 100 and subtract from that to get your negative number. Depending on how
large you wish your calculator to go to, the larger the number you will need the player
to start out with.
Below is a video of me showing this off.
(sorry for the static and no music, it was a quick video to show the concept)
Mine is a proof of concept,
easily can be made smaller, but I had put it together quickly after sketching it on paper.
A cool addon for this is to have it change the time of the day, and have a daylight censor emit redstone
signals to light up a Display so you can visually see your total on a board rather than
in your chat, which would be quite better.
Keep in mind this is not just limited to a simple calculator but can be used in an Adventure Map to
decide how many Pts a player has or something to that sort.
Thank you for your time and remember to give feedback on the system and share how you
have used it or plan to use it or how you can improve on the idea.
