    The cave update is definitely something that is much needed, an idea too would be to increase dig depth to allow a much more vast cave system. A game that executes cave beautifully is Terraria. One of the things people love and fear to explore are caves and all the resources they can yield make it a much worthwhile journey.

    The idea of the traveling trader was good for villagers but in a cave update why not a lost miner? Maybe if you rescue him you’ll get an effect similar to hero of the village but maybe it increases your chance to drop more ores like fortune. Or cheaper trade costs. You could find more dungeon types too, the only dungeons we have in caves are strongholds and spawner dungeons and those two could be updated. Underwater caves could have drowned spawners? Or maybe a new Variant of an existing hostile mob or a new mob alotogether wouldn’t be bad. This could open the door to other avenues as well, updates to strongholdes. With a lowered dig limit you could change things in the nether and the end as well adding avenues for really brave players that seek high rewards with high risks.

    Minecraft is an amazing game many have been playing since alpha, beta, etc.. we would all love to see an amazing cave update, hopefully this idea and some of the ones I’m posting have been considered or in the works. :)

    For Caves, I'm not sure how much Mojang are willing to change?

    If they don't plan to change much, new mobs or items that can only spawn in caves would be a start, some sort of rock creature or mineshaft dweller that can drop possibly a new object or an ore etc.

    If they do plan to change generation then most certainly biome caves, Desert caves should have a different style to taiga caves or jungle caves. Jungle caves could have large openings with vines coming down whilst desert caves have sand and dead plants in the corners.

    I'm not sure how much this could change but what if they increased how deep we could dig downwards, the current limit being extended with a new Hardstone block. Lowering the bedrock level further down. This hardstone is similar to obsidian as it can be mined but will take a very long time without the right tools. This is where the grind comes into play, you can only go mining so deep with correct tools. Whether players can use diamond tools to break it or not is up to Mojang. But if not then players will have to use a new tool or new grade stronger than diamond to break through the Hardstone to reach deeper depths of the world than ever before.

    A lot a posts are made at this thread so i don't know if this has been suggested yet, sorry if it has. 

    I suggest improving mineshafts with some rather minor stuff, when u see a mineshaft u get the idea that it was build by people, but no confirmation is really given. I would suggest to add some stuff such as like living quarter rooms inside which you would find beds and chests. This would be where the miners slept and the chest could have some loot inside. Armory rooms would be cool too, rooms where the miners would leave their tools and the armor they would wear. I would suggest for players to be able to loot the armor and tools but don't make them really valuable items, maybe just iron armor and tools. I would also suggest that mineshafts have actual entrances from the surface, just some simple stairs that lead down would be good enough in my opinion. Maybe add some small details such as holes left over from TNT explosions, dynamite was used by miners back in the day, dunno if they still use it today. You can obviously hold torches in your left hand but a miner helmet with a light would be a cool item. Another idea that i had was to add an ambient noise which would be the sound of a pickaxe being used to hit rocks, this sound would be randomly played when u get close to a mineshaft. Someone suggested an idea about Ghost Miners and i'd say putting these guys in the mineshafts would be the perfect spot.

    + more gems/ores/ingots which can formed into armour, weapons and such. Even different types of stone would make a difference!

    Exclusive mobs could spawn like        

    • new spiders

    • dead miners

    • ore fish (like silverfish but for ores)

    And maybe exclusive items 

    • new vines

    • ore chunks hidden in stone (when broken more ore than normal )

    • special enchanted pickaxes from dead miners (could be something like auto smelt,higher enchants like fourtune 4? maniac miner where when crouched blocks in a 2x2 or 3x3 area will break ect)

    I like the idea because the caves can be more interesting and it'll be fun to come across new and unique mobs and items that would be found only in caves. I haven't completely thought this through but here's a little list of things I would like to see:
    *Glow-worms that can provide the player with some light.
    *dungeons
    *ruins
    *maybe an occupied underground town/or city
    *mini cave biomes ljke for example a cave that has a water hole and a little bit of life growing around it like some moss or grass with a few flowers with a waterfall coming from above the cave and possibly a lost explorers book or treasure that can be found under forest biomes and something a little different for each biome.
    * lost miners who became zombies or skeletons or maybe they are just corrupted and greedy by all the treasures deep down and new mobs like vampires, minotaurs, cave bears etc.
    * I also like the thought of rope for a safer way of getting around and cave maps for easier navigation.

    Add events such as rifts that open or stalagmites that drop down or water that shoots up. These events should not occur all the time. Make them semi rare.

    A mob that protects ores. That mob would be a variation of the zombie mob and drowned. The name could be the “fallen”. The mob fell into caves to find ores but died trying to pull the ores up. The fallen therefor protects ores. For the fallen to protect ores it does not matter if ores are visible or not. The fallen has a special pickaxe that he uses to fight. A player knows when a fallen is around there must be ores nearby. The fallen can also throw its pickaxe. When a player got hit by its pickaxe two blocks underneath the player disappears.

    I was thinking rare ores that are only found in the nether other than quartz and also caves with ores near end cities

    I feel like they could look at the huge open space caves too, as I love seeing the work creators do in those

    dark quarts.  I think that this should be in the game, because there is normal quarts and it would be nice to get a pattern out of it.

    Plus, there could be chiseled dark quarts, 

    pillar dark quarts, etc.

    Hello!

    I think that should be copper and ruby ore as well as ruby chunks, copper chunks, emerald chunks, iron chunks, and gold chunks.

    Please vote!    Bye! ; )

    I think that this is a perfect time to introduce rubys and well rock minions might be over the top but still.Ruby is ahead of gold more dura more better also you can trade them with blacksmiths.Also you can introduce the miner helm 3 protection and lights the way

    you should add new ores and make them useful for different purposes, like armor that is better aggainst certain damage type or armor that brings super powers, weapons that make other damage, instruments that are better for mining certain blocks

    YESSS! And maybe glowing things too! It would be really neat if there were glowing mushrooms, or rare ores like diamond, redstone, and emerald gave off a subtle glow of their color that would look really pretty in the dark. More ambience maybe, Stalagmites, more drastic/dramatic caves and more structures to come across- that would all be incredible! 
    The game is called 'mine' craft, after all ^^ It would be nice to explore for ores while being able to appreciate both beautiful and terrifying scenery/ambience.
