  • Commands
    • /trigger
      • Syntax: /trigger <objective> <add:set> <value>
      • Functions the same way as /scoreboard players set or /scoreboard players add, but can only modify objectives with the trigger criteria (referred to as "triggers") and can only modify the score of the player running the command
      • Can be used by non-operator players
      • For a player to run this command, the trigger must be enabled for that player
