Welcome to my scoreboard tutorial! If you have no idea what a minecraft scoreboard is, it's a way of storing numbers attached to a certain entity, or even a fake player. It's useful for storing points in minigames, storing times, and more. So, lets get on to it!

Creating A Scoreboard

Making a scoreboard! The first thing you have to do is create a scoreboard using "/scoreboard objectives add Name dummy". Now, you can unlock the magic! The dummy in the command means that it can only be changed by commands. What happens if you want a scoreboard that adds a point every time you do something? Replace dummy with stat. and press tab. It brings up a list of all the stat. things! Every time you do that action, it adds 1 to the score. Example: /scoreboard objectives add Kills stat.killEntity.Zombie will add a point every time you kill a zombie.

Displaying A Scoreboard

Well, how do you know that your scoreboard is working? How do you display a scoreboard? Use this command: "/scoreboard objectives setdisplay sidebar ScoreboardName". Now, you can see the scoreboard on the right side of the screen! This is great for minigames, and a major feature in large servers. What happens when you don't want it? Try this: "/scoreboard objectives setdisplay sidebar". It will clear the sidebar of any objective.

Changing Scores

How do you change scores using commands? Well, it's pretty simple! Lets start with addind and removing scores. "/scoreboard players add @a ScoreboardName 1". Replace 1 with how much you want to add. What about removing? "/scoreboard players remove @a ScoreboardName 1". Again, replace 1 with how much you want to remove. Let's set a score to a certain number. "/scoreboard players set @a ScoreboardName 1". Yeah, just replace 1 with the number you want to set it to. Last thing, reseting scores. If you tested your map and you don't want your name on the scoreboard, try "/scoreboard players reset @a ScoreboardName". That's all you need to know to make a great minigame!

Final Note

So, I hope this tutorial helped! If you have any further questions, please ask them in the comments. Bye and have a wonderful day!
