icon In-game scorepoint list (+2)  
Currently, RPG scorepoints don't even show up on the scoreboards until someone earns them. This means, if a hold has an obscure scorepoint (like Growing's "Under 50 Time", which was unlisted until I got it last night), you either have to stumble on it while you play, notice it in the editor, or hope somebody mentions it on the forum.

Challenge tracking in regular DROD currently works similarly to scorepoints; it's not listed on the challenge page at all until someone gets it. However, there's a button you can click in the Restore screen that lists all the challenges. Maybe something similar could be done with scorepoints?

There is the issue that, since scorepoints are usually used for hold progression, their names might be spoilers. This could be handled by hiding the scorepoint names until you earn them. What's important for completion purposes is knowing that there's one you don't have.

Or maybe there could just be a "Scorepoints earned" counter that unlocks after beating a hold, like the secrets counter is. I'm not sure what would work best, I just want a way to know I'm not missing anything.

Just curious - are there any plans to do something in this direction in either of the coming updates?

I appreciate the question! Not yet, afaik, but that could change.

I'm working on bringing this feature into reality for 1.3. Here's the current progress:

Look at those scorepoints, all nicely listed. There's still work to be done for making them greyed out when not done, and possibly hiding the names. Also all the wording and positioning of dialogs and buttons could change. But progress is happening!
