This mod was created primarily as an example mod for the Skill Creation Tutorial. It is, however, a fully-functional mod. It adds a Woodcuting Skill to the game (details below). The Skill Creation Tutorial provides the guidelines for creating a skill with Papyrus, and can be downloaded here:

+++The Tutorial+++

The tutorial first introduces you to the concept of the method, and then proceeds to explain it's implementation. I do not provide pre-wriiten code that will work to make any skill, since creating such a mod requires a great deal of innovation. However, you will be taught the concept, and provided with guidelines for creating your own skill.

+++The Woodcutting Skill Mod+++
The Woodcutting Skill Mod adds a woodcutting skill to the game. Now, whenever you chop wood, you will gain experience points and be notified of your level progression by notifications in the top left-hand corner. The first time that you use a Wood Chop Block, you will be given the Woodcutting Management power that will let you check your stats and gain new perks. There are three perks which you can gain.

Harvester 1 - Get 3 Firewood for each chop.
Harvester 2 - Get 4 Firewood for each chop.
Timber! - Deal double damage with the Woodcutter's Axe!

This mod should work for any of the standard Wood Chop Blocks, unless they are tied to a specific quest.

Compatability: This mod will not work with any mod that modifies the "resourcefurniturescript" script.


Along with the tutorial I have provided this example Woodcutting Skill mod for you to download.
While the mod is not extensive, since it was merely created as an example for you to study, it is fully functional. Feel free to play it, examine it's code, or even expand it into a full mod as much as you want. I give this mod and it's source code to anyone and everyone who wants to use it. You may do anything that you want with it, so long as you credit me for my work in the original source version.

@Deathgear I don't really have the time to extend this because of all of the other projects and responsibilities that I'm working on. If you want to, though, you can read through my tutorial and try your hand at it. It would be a bit hard, but it would be a good introduction to modding and scripting. If you or anyone else wants to extend this, you (or they) have my permission to upload it as long as they credit me for my work.

could you extend this? like have more levels and perks such as chopping wood faster or more wood (Even more) maybe a reduced weight or something...?
Deathgear Jul 30, 2012 @ 5:12am 
By the Way doesn't work with woodchopping extended...
Deathgear Jul 30, 2012 @ 4:56am 
Really simple but actually ingenius!

@AllieCat [gD] Thank you. :-)

The only mods that would affect that script are ones that change the Wood Chop Blocks or the ore deposits. Even most mods that mess with those items probably don't affect the script anyway. For the most part you have nothing to worry about. :-)
