    You guys know what I think they should add? I actually don't know what they should add. This is the only idea I can think of: This may make you guys think I'm crazy, but I think they should add maybe, uhhh, how 'bout paint?! Or maybe even mirrors! No? How about they add WHALES? OR EVEN SNAKES? How about worms? If they added bees, why not worms,snakes, and/or whales?

    Seria una buena idea medidor: basalto (roca ignia para encontrar hierro y diamantes) cobre, azufre. no me gusta la idea del aldeano minero zombi, las minas deben tener como "biomas", un jefe ejemplo la araña gigante o matriarca eso seria bueno o metro una actualización de mobs (que los creepers tienen mas especies: creeper nevado, creeper caliente) o que un modo ultra hard core o EXPERTO mucho mas dificil o remplazando el hardcore con una barra de agua me gusta la idea que los esqueletos estes revueltos en el piso y cuando te vean se levanten. 

    1. basalto:

    asi seria mejor encontrar hierro y diamante, no como ahora que si medio entras a una mina de hierro!

    I think diamonds should remain on top for armor and (most) tools

     

    Edit: ManFromMarz18; "Uranium - Can he found in rare areas of caves, and are extremely hazardous. Maybe they can cause radiation/poisoning when in a certain radius, and have a small chance of exploding when mined."

    I think that the effects should scale with game difficulty, with higher explosion chance/ bigger radius (or damage) on the harder the difficulty, and on peaceful it should not explode and do little damage to you.

    Caves are one of those things in Minecraft that can be overhauled, like oceans and villages. Certain things that must be fixed are things like the upgrade system. Currently the upgrade system is wood to stone, stone to iron, and iron to diamond. This needs to be fixed, because it gets really boring and repetitive. Adding copper between stone and iron, and sapphire or ruby between iron and diamond. I stand by the belief that nothing should replace diamond as the best material, but something should be added that's similar in rarity and durability. For example, a system of purifying iron into steel, is a good idea, and maybe steel could auto smelt or something. I think all these new ores should get armor, tools, and recipes based off them for full availability and praise. A cave update is needed for Minecraft, and must be overhauled.

    Yes!! Like maybe crystals, amethyst, sapphire, topaz, there are so many types of ore that should be added!

    Strip mining should be less viable as an option, or more interesting.

    New ores please 🥺. With mining, all you really need is iron, diamond, and coal. There’s not a lot of useful ores in the game.

    Maybe you should add special mobs in different caves

    Wait, you mean you're getting tired of seeing the same exact thing every time you go mining (you know, one of the two major parts of the game), with absolutely no features having been added to it (discounting ocean trenches and stuff like that) in like, seven years? Impossible!
    Sorry for the sarcasm Mojang, but it's the only way I know how to effectively illustrate a point like this. I know you've been focused on adding other cool new features (ocean monuments, raids, treasure hunts, end cities), fixing bugs (e.g. accessibility issues similar to the one I reported on your JIRA recently), and planning future improvements, but biomes aren't the only thing that have gotten stale over the years, you know!

     

    edit: all that said, I would like to stress that I don't think we really need anything fancy like a complicated new mob on the caliber of phantoms. Just some tweaks like adding stalagmites/stalactites and maybe a rare underground mini biome or the like would do. I'm thinking something like the crystal cave showcased in ibxtoycat's video from a few years ago, but  basically it just needs to be spiced up, not changed completely.

    What I think is that it would be good, the updating of the caves, because it can be useful since there are two types of blocks in Minecraft that cannot be used, (at present) that are the table of blacksmithing and the feathered table since more minerals can be added, and that can only be built on those work tables, so the updating of the caves would be very good and,that we could have a miner that can exchange us as minerals, weaponry, ect since we can find it only in the caves or mines but that that it was very rare to find and give expensive prices like the villagers but that can give more than other things and for that reason, I think it would be a great update and that they can add more mods stubborn and non-stubborn for better experience and one mini bosses to be more interesting that's why I vote for the update of the caves

    I think there should be new ores like salt salt will be found in the water and you can make stuff salted but you get thirst when you eat it more ore like copper rubys nether gold and other but you can make armor out of it

    It would be great to tell you: let's go to a cave, something like a construction, whether they only update the mines that are already there or make small abandoned villages between the land or something similary. It would also be great as what they say, epic treasure chests although that would not combine well with the theme of the game, since Minecraft is based more on the natural than on the fantasy.

    I would like you to take in the cave update miners, spiders, mining skeletons, new minerals such as copper, platinum or silver, ruby ​​ect ... in the caves that have cobwebs, mold, stalactites ect ... Finally, it would be nice to get a boss, spider or stone monster with all the minerals.

    "and more industrial machinery."

    Seria bueno. Que al mismo tiempo agregaran nuevos mobs y también luna mini jefe. Dentro de cuevas especiales y algúnos mobs hostiles para aumentar la dificultad y la experiencia de este maravilloso juego espero que nuestros comentarios sean tomados en cuenta para una actualización de las cuevas :)

         I have read alot of great ideas in the comments adding to the Cave Update suggestion. I see many want things like natural formations, cave dwelling mobs and villages, news ores and tools and blocks, and even areas with higher difficulty levels. All are very exciting and could really spice up the underground after the Nether Update.

         In addintion to the various suggestions for a more natural and unique cave envirionment i would like to propose cave paintings, broken pottery, arrow heads, and relics. With the upcoming Nether Update and the Villager and Pillager AI update it has brought a new sentient world into focus. I believe adding in the Native Ancenstor rarity could be similiar to that of the fossils found in deserts.

     

      Lastly if a cave update indeed is in our future, I would love to see it as a Geology update, adding in minerals, metals, and natural formations and maybe a rare mob or two. Earth has its own natural layer system, and it could be really neat seeing some visual representaion of your elevation as you mine away the debris, this may just be to much to add. A new villager proffesion and job could also be created, The Geologist. Possibly a Jewler or something to trade your rubies with. The education edition could also benefit from this Geology Update.
