    caves should have more ores such as titanium ore or ruby or saphire ores that can craft the same as diamond but with more durabilty and attack damage

    I'll admit that I'm not as invested in a cave update as these other people, but I'd still be interested to see some improvement to cave systems since it could add some interesting ideas to the game. If you are one of the people who don't want to add any new features to the game like me, here are my ideas for improving caves down below.

    1. Add more variety to the walls, floors, ceiling, etc. Currently, inside of naturally spawning caves, we have 6 blocks that can spawn for visual aesthetics: Dirt, stone, andesite, diorite, granite, and sometimes gravel. Honestly, they're not exactly topping the charts on popularity. Adding something like patches of obsidian at the y level lava naturally spawns anyway would break up the monotonous repetition of endless stone that players have to travel through in caves. It doesn't even have to be more blocks added to the game, it just needs to be anything other than endless stone.

    2. Mineshafts. Yeah, they're great as structures, but they haven't been updated since they've been put in the game, and they aren't too keen on variety. Overall, mineshafts are sort of pointless since they are usually aren't worth risking the cave spider spawners and thousands of other mobs between players and Diamonds. I'd also like to add, if possible, an "official entrance" to mineshafts so that it's less a matter of randomly finding the mineshafts and more of "where to look".

    I’d love for the “structure overlap” thing to be fixed as well.

    I think there should be maybe a new ore. Not to the magnitude of diamond or iron but like something that you just craft with. I am thinking something along the same lines as gold but more useful and cant be made into tools and armor. Since if it would be added in the cave update I think the items should pertain to caving and mining. I do not know what the items would be though. Maybe people could respond with ideas for items.

    This is a topic that I have very strong feelings about. Mining used to be the main way to get ores, but now we have buried treasure, desert and jungle temples, mansions, sunken ships, underwater ruins, and nether fortresses, to name a few. With all of these ways to get loot is there a real reason to mine? In a short answer NO! Of course not, these new ways to get ores are easier, more entertaining, and can often yield better loot. Now compare that to mining: it’s difficult, dangerous, and often tedious. A cave update would give us a reason to mine again as the very name of the game suggests we should be doing, it’s literally called Mine-Craft. Every update we get involved crafting but we haven’t gotten any major changes to Mining in MINEcraft. I love Minecraft in so many ways I can hardly describe it, and I am not in any way shape or form saying that Minecraft is not a good game. All I am saying is that Minecraft needs to build its self up in the mining department. Many people myself included feel very strongly about the matter of a cave update. I mean, what, ten thousand some votes That’s Absolutely Insane! Also when I say cave update I don’t mean different spawn rates in different biomes, no I’m talking about new ores, new structures, new mobs, new functions, new tools, and maybe even a new boss.

    I'd love to see more underground structures, maybe not as detailed as the stronghold, but like houses that were turned into ruins with maybe exclusive things to find there

    Stalagmites could give you a random ore if you mine them (in consideration, of course). They could also add a new structure, like a chest next to a crafting table and a furnace, like some small part of an abandoned mineshaft. And, finally, they should update monster spawners where you could use, like, a silk touch pickaxe to pick one up and place it back down, but it would be a random mob when you place it back down. Speaking of mining, they, obviously, need new pickaxes, or at least new enchantments. Like a drill or a lazer cutter to name a few ideas.

    There needs to be certain caves like what you see in real life when you go into cave sites. Not mine shafts where they dig, but actual caves. Theres caves that are very big and flat. Minecraft does not have caves like this. Etc.

    Mojang should really get this off their back, imagine how many more people would start to play this game, this is the only thing we have been asking for a lot, besides vertical slabs, but they stated that it wont come out, but caves, PLEASE, Mine-craft, i see you guys are focusing on the crafting part, but if you dont mine you cant craft, so please update caves, would make the game more fun

    most mobs will still spawn on the surface but, if we want skeletons there might have to encloud graveyards that have a random mob spawner in the mid with a few chests

    Having new mobs that can be cave mob bosses that when defeated will drop special items. These mob bosses could be found only in caves or rare caves, that would be cool. Maybe as well adding crystal caves, that can be rare to find. But definatly having different element\ environment caves (ice, water, lava, swamp etc.)

    Hello people of Microsoft I would like to say some thing that most people would want that who love to mine and fight maybe even you it to build with, what I am asking for is more ores, more features for mining, more weapons, pickaxes, and armor that are strong than diamond armor! I would love to see that get added in Minecraft instead of focusing on biomes and blocks.

    I think minecraft needs more hostile mobs, mabye a mob that takes your armor. New enchantments would also help. I also agree with cave biomes!

    Along with dynamic lighting when holding a torch or lantern in your hand to light up the cave. I think the light should reflect off shards of crystals in the cave to show you’re near ore. For example if there was diamonds on the other side of the cave wall that you normally wouldn’t see; if you had a light source nearby, the stone wall closest to the diamonds would sparkle turquoise.

    My ideas for a cave update would include cobalt, which would be found exclusively in slime chunks but in big amounts below y48, which can be used for enhancements. Enhancements would be like enchantments except you combine a tool/armor piece and a scroll and they wouldn't stack. Enhanced items can't be enchanted, and enchanted items will lose their enchantments once enhanced to balance it. Enhancements would include Strength, Sustainment, and Speed (more damage, more durability, and faster use time, respectively).

    This post has been around for a long time so I think I should throw my two cents into the matter.

    Mojang, don't be afraid to add "useless" features. I know people tend to wine when a block doesn't really do anything, but we builders would appreciate new blocks like Maw Sit Sit or Basalt to build out of.

    Give tools/armor special buffs. I feel like Diamond armor should always have the highest durability/protection, but other materials could have their own buffs, like how Gold tools dig faster and Turtle Shells let you breathe underwater. Perhaps Sapphire armor could give you the luck buff and Fire Opal armor could make you immune to fire damage.

    Make things biome specific. The underground in Minecraft is both cluttered and boring. Adding variety to caves by biome will help with inventory management and add incentive to explore. Peridots could  be desert exclusive for example. 

    The Nether should have a higher amount of Quartz and Igneous rocks than the Overworld. Stuff like Amethyst, Bloodstone, or Basalt wouldn't necessarily be Nether exclusive, but would be much more common there. Would add extra incentive to live/mine there.

    The nether update is just a cover up for the cave update, since the nether is a big cave
