    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.)

    I would love to have a cave update with better generation and maybe better dungeons and strongholds they are in caves too. Maybe armor and weapons. and nether cave /biomes would be epic!

    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

    Also more vegetation in caves is a good idea.

    Try making more interesting things instead of just wild mine shafts and lava but in that case make the caves bigger and the new stuff in caves and the caves themselves harder to find

    I don't agree on mobs just spawning in caves.I actually hate mobs spawning in caves. Cause caves are small and you can't hide or maneuver cause you're basically surrounded.

    Check out mumbo jumbo’s video on updating caves. He had some really interesting ideas.

    Like overgrown cave systems, different types of dungeons and, like someone mentioned before, rare caves with bosses and lava.
