    I think if you add disasters in caves like: suddenly a huge rock closes the way or tries to smash you.
    Also add mixing ores to get new materials and gems

    A new kind of villagers.The miners.
    They will trade with new resources and ores and they will trade with new machines or tools

    Adding some things that could make mining a bit more dangerous and exciting would make mining & spelunking much more fun and potentially more rewarding (ex. a high-risk, high-reward scenario). I'm not suggesting anything too drastic, just different biomes or differently-generated caves, perhaps. As for the danger, new cave-specific mobs (mobs that don't spawn above a certain Y) would be phenomenal. Other things such as quarries, which could be uncommon generations found above ground, would add a layer of realism that I believe the game is currently lacking in. In that same vein (ha!), adding dig sites (and maybe some variants for variety) could add in more danger, say, with TNT. Adding TNT to a new kind of underground dig site would not only make it more realistic, but give a new way to find TNT, since right now, players can only locate it naturally under desert temples. It could be added to abandoned mineshafts as well, all-in-all adding another level of risk and reward to the game. Maybe there could even be some non-abandoned mineshafts, who knows?

    But really. The game is called "Minecraft," after all, and most players spend a ton of time in caves. (Not to mention that Minecraft was originally named "Cave Game.") Caves are an intrinsic part of the game, but they haven't been changed much at all since the game was out of alpha, (besides the addition of granite, andesite, and diorite). It's been the better part of a decade now, and caves have been essentially untouched (the same goes for strongholds, but that's a different conversation). The Update Aquatic and upcoming Nether Update are giving exactly the kind of love to the oceans and Nether that caves need, and they are proof that the Mojang team is capable of improving caves. I'm not here to rant like others might be, I'm here because I love this game and want to see it become the best it can be. Mojang, millions of people agree that Minecraft is amazing, and you have always shown the continuous dedication to improve upon it. I know that many people in the community have been laying on a ton of pressure for a cave update (and the return of 1.8.9 pvp, which I'd also love, but that again is another conversation), and I know that you can't please everyone. Living up to the expectations, especially with a game and fanbase as massive as this one. But, I'd argue that the majority want the cave update, and you'd probably rake in revenue.

    So, that's my spiel. Whether you are going to add a cave update or not remains to be seen, and I'm not here to make the decision for you. At the end of the day, I'm probably just another voice in the crowd. But if you got this far, whether you're on Mojang's team or just another player like me, thank you.

    I have an idea. Maybe sperate all of these ideas. Make your own thread. For me reading all of these ideas at once is overwhelming and it will probably be the same way with whoever looks over them. Making a separate post would also most likely give it more attention and increase the likelihood of it being added. I love all of your ideas and would like to see them in game but it would be nice to see them separate.

    You could make something like in terraria : copper, silver. Also you could have ores exclusive to certain biomes like chlorophtite in terraria. But I don't really know how to make a lot of ores like in terraria because there you progress in the game though killing bosses and after that step you have new ores available, but minecraft doesn't progress that way so idk

    I think Mojang should add more stuff like abandoned mine-shafts and Mob spawners. even if it was an update at a time, it would give more of a story to the caves. I think it would be really cool if they added an underground village, and it would be a society of a different type villagers.

    I think that the same old ores have been the only ores for far to long. We need different biomes in caves, and ne ores added with it. I also think there could possibly be new and advanced crafting stations. The cave update could bring minecraft to a new era depending on how deep the develepors get with it.

    The Dwarf in me is in need of larger caves. I on average carve out ravines to roughly 30-40 blocks in width, this assuming I don't expand further in the process.

    Ontop of that, i'd quite like to see Crystal deposits in caverns. Something that can boost the light level around it. Maybe even cast light in specific directions so an array of Crystals could light a space or large cavern

    That’s is a good idea. But what do you mean by “mobs only in caves?”

    I think you can refer to "Journey to the Center of the Earth" by Jules Verne for some good ideas.

    Idea List:

    1. Cave Cities, similar to overworld structures like desert temples/villages/woodland mansions

    2. Cave Biomes based on the overworld biome above you

    3. Cave Specific enemies, maybe like a fake ore that transforms into an actual mob

    4. New Ores, we really need more ores. Diamonds are easy to obtain by night 7 for me. I think a new ore or two that were very rare, or maybe even cave--biome specific ores?

    I have some ideas 1. Queen Spider I fear spiders, and if my idea is next to this update, I will not go back to a cave, but I say it for the fans. This would be a boss of the game, it will appear in a spider web structure, it would have a large spider tail, as if measuring 2x2 blocks high and wide, where normal spiders would come to attack, if you kill it, you will have the crown of spiders, A gold crown with a ruby ​​and spider eyes. Which if you put it, spiders will not attack you, if not, they will attack those who attack you. It will also release, strong rope, a much better rope, to make bows, fishing rods, crossbows, etc. more resistant, and a weapon called, hook, which would be a strong rope with a beak, but, if you crackle it with a crossbow, you will have like a hook gun, but with a crossbow. The queen spiders and their small spiders would be one of these colors. Brown, Blue or Cyan. They would not be black widows 2. Elite skeletons These skeletons will appear in the desert temple, the jungle temple, and two new structures, temple castle and jungle castle. Both castles would be huge, very large, with a boss each, but we are talking about skeletons. These skeletons would have new armor and weapons, of gold or emerald, affected by the biome. Gold and emerald shield. Super resistant and with a new enchantment. Mirror, this enchantment would make the shield that receives an attack, return the attack to which I attack with double the damage. I mean, it would be the skeletons of Minecraft Dungeos, but with a variety of the Desert would be the same as Minecraft Dungeons, and the jungle would have greenish colors instead of yellowish ones. 3. More stones In the Soul Sand Valley basalt will be added. which should also appear in a new biome of volcanoes, better than those of Chisel Mod. But... Basalt should not be the only new stone that was missing, there is also more. Marble, a white stone that is widely used in construction, if added to minecraft, would be used a lot to make houses, statues, etc. Limestone, is another stone like and the same objective as marble, but it is half greenish, it may not be used much in houses, but in other things. Etc Oh, hundreds of these stones. I only said three ideas. I don't ask that all three be added together. but that at least one of these is in the game. I ask the stone variants.

    My idea is that caves could have ice and also forgotten miners that are zombies and these miners could have picks of all kinds and could also have a new ore that would be a ruby ​​and also emeralds could be more useful to do for example, a quit of armor and also the equipment like pickax and the other miners thing when going through a very large cave maze later when you find an abandoned mine at the beginning would have a boss with many mining zombies as a raid after killing all zombies would appear a giant zombie miner; one thing i'm brazilian
