New Magic Crafting
Caster Level of items being created is limited and determined by a characters ranks in Spellcraft OR their Caster Level.

Craft skill AND a Knowledge Skill both equal to or higher than the spell level of the item being created. Knowledge(Arcana) when the item is created by an Arcane caster or using an Arcane spell and Knowledge(Religion) when the item is created by a Divine caster or using a Divine spell.

Minimum Craft Skills Required:

Scribing a Scroll - Minimum 1 rank in Spellcraft. Craft(Calligraphy) rank 1 and Knowledge rank 1.

Inscribing a Rune - Minimum 3 ranks in Spellcraft. Craft(Calligraphy) rank 2 and Knowledge rank 2.

Inscribing a Tattoo - Minimum 5 ranks in Spellcraft. Craft(Calligraphy) rank 3 and Knowledge rank 3.

Brewing a Potion - Minimum 3 ranks in Spellcraft. Craft(Alchemy) rank 3 and Knowledge rank 3.

Craft Wand - Minimum 5 ranks in Spellcraft. Craft(Remote Device) rank 3 and Knowledge rank 3.

Craft Rod - Minimum 9 ranks in Spellcraft. Craft(Remote Device) rank 5 and Knowledge rank 5.

Craft Staff - Minimum 11 ranks in Spellcraft. Craft(Remote Device) rank 6 and Knowledge rank 6.

Craft Wondrous/Ring - Minimum 3 ranks in Spellcraft. Craft(Trinket) rank 2 and Knowledge rank 2.

Craft Magic Arms and Armour - Minimum 5 ranks in Spellcraft. Craft(Weapon or Armour) rank 3 and Knowledge rank 3.

Craft Construct - Minimum 5 ranks in Spellcraft. Craft(Trinket and Armour and Weapon) rank 3 and Knowledge rank 3.

Example: To craft a scroll of invisibility you need Knowledge(Arcana) rank 2 or higher because it is a 2nd level arcane spell. You also need Craft(Calligraphy) rank 2 for the same reason(higher level spells are more difficult to scribe down perhaps). Finally you need ranks in Spellcraft equal to the Caster Level you want to make the scroll at(minimum 3 for 2nd level spell as usual all the way up to 20 if you have that many ranks).
