Are you going to add combat skill because this mod looks sick and Id love to level up combat :biggrin.gif: more power and weapon usage every few levels. would be amazing!
I've considered it quite a bit, however A. Monsters in Minecraft aren't known for lasting more than 5 hits with any sword and B. Notch is doing something of the combat leveling sort in 1.8 so I decided to leave that to him.
1)Chopping and Mining skills, as they level up you are able to destroy blocks faster than average.
2)Crafting, as you reach high levels you are able to produce larger amounts of items.
3)Farming (when implemented), could produce a higher yield from crops and more durability for tools at higher levels. 4)Exploration could reward travelling distances and exploring dungeons, and at higher levels this skill could slightly increase run speed, size of handheld maps etc.
Love the crafting idea, wouldn't have thought of that. As for mining and chopping I'm trying to keep the modding of Minecraft files to a minimum, I have a maximum of 2 lines at a time in any file I've modded, and I've yet to find a non-modded way to increase mining and chopping speed but I haven't given up.
Also don't you worry about the farming, I have plenty of ideas in mind xD
