    Hi
    I think that in abandoned mine shafts there should be a increased amount of skeletons, but they are wearing golden helmets to reassemble mining hats/hard hats

    If nee ores are added, copper could be a really cool option for another Redstone type of thing. The behavior difference would be like slime blocks and honey blocks. Copper wire wouldn't affect redstone dust and vice versa unless a repeater or some new block connected them. Not sure how power indication would work though. Maybe a little light in the center?

    Maybe some ores including copper, lead, tin, and tungsten. Maybe you could take these ingots and melt them down further in a tungsten furnace (so as not the melt the furnace itself). You could mix these melted metals to create things like steel or bronze. Just some ideas. Thanks for hearing me out!

    Hey Mojang.

    I have a few ideas for this upcoming (hopefully) update that includes a few ideas for cave generation, structures, mobs and gameplay aspects:

    -This is a big one: I don't know much about coding, and I'm not gonna pretend I do, but what I do know is that the nether generates spectacularly. So, I was wondering if you could incorporate that into the cave generation system (obviously replacing the netherrack with stone etc.). As well as making it so that not only does the terrain infinitely generate on the x and z axes but also on the y-axis, allowing this nether generation effect to be amplified the deeper you go. And also maybe making it so that only starts about 1 or 2 hundred blocks below ground so that the classic caves are also there, and you don't immediately drop into a vast lava-filled cavern.

    -Now these are some mobs that maybe you guys can add: Worms that swallow blocks and attack the player (found deep), stone golems that can only be crafted with a special ore, and are vulnerable to pickaxes, villagers underground that trade you rare resources in exchange for things only found aboveground and a whole host of hostile and passive mobs

    -It would also be really cool to see some classic structures get refurbished, such as dungeons and abandoned mineshafts by adding some traps and changing the look and size, as well as adding things like underground civilizations where those villagers and maybe even stone golems can be found.

    -This has a bit to do with the first one, but it would also be pretty awesome if there were different types of underground biomes, such as the huge lava filled caverns, narrow but long caves, worm nests and maybe even super rare ore pockets filled with magnificent crystals.

    -Some new ores would be really nice to add too, like citrine, turquoise and amethyst as well as some made up ones crystals as well. With uses such as being crafted into armor, weapons, and maybe even consumables as well as adding different types of furnaces and fuels capable of smelting different ores.

    -And lasts but not least: Traps that set off rolling stones which chase after the player, damaging blocks that they run into. This would serve as a cool touch and a homage to a classic movie.

     

    It would be really cool to see some of this added to the game, and I hope this comment finds you well.

    dead miners and a rare skellton bird cause of they sent birds in to see about gas leeks in the abandoned mine shaft and some kind of small mushroom camp that used to be like the sleeping camp for the miners but then they died and turned in to this mushroom zombie and skeleton that gives u that effect of dizzyness when shot

    Im waiting for the cave update and i have ideas like these;

    - Ruby Ores.

    - boss mobs near the spawners

    - Icy caves

    - Magma caves

    - Hot Stones (like when the stone is near to lava the stone will be hot and give us damage.)

    - Stalactiles.

    - Bats Private Caves (and please update bats)

    - more featured villager mines.

    - Underwater caves (like there will be water in the caves)

    - more deep world (like its finish at 0 but i think it can go like -1 , -2 , -3, etc.)

    - New texture for Spider (and please make spiders a little bit small)

    - New Texture for Lava.

    - New Texture for Water.

    - New Texture for Bats.

    - Underground treasures.

    - Undertale Mash-up (please)

    These all needs a very big work but i think you can do it! ;)

    "- Mobs spawning only in caves?"

    No that would be unbalanced but everything else yes

    Personally. I think that this update should involve many more tools, such as better pickaxes, also and update to emeralds they need more uses other than trading. We should also update all the mine-shafts and mob spawners. More ores, like copper, uranium, sapphires, rubies, etc.. More armor, with quirks would be cool tool. There is a lot that really needs to be added into the game and the developers have really been lacking.

    I would like to see minerals such as: ruby, amethyst and maybe some shiny stone with an insect inside with which one can negotiate with the villagers...

    Minecraft is gonna do a lot more stuff with mushrooms like in the nether so I think you should do some sort of underground mushroom biome. Maybe with glowing mushrooms or some type of creature that glows to provide a purple blueish light. Or you could also make caverns that have nether portals and it looks like it’s been sort of taken over by the nether with piglins and other nether creatures. Big mushrooms in caves and maybe some sort of enchanted underground forest with giant mushrooms and glow worms and glowing mushrooms maybe with little mushroom creatures like goblins or elves

    I agree with the cave update!!!!

    Minecraft is about mining and adventure and such more things which the devs have updated imroved and added to 

    but there needs to be more excitement to mining rather than just mine and thats it, i would love there to be abandoned houses from 1000s of years ago and maybe some new ores like copper, ruby, zinc, lead, etc. 

    Also stalegmites and stalegtites would add a more realistic feel to minecraft and have a purpose to maybe live in a cave underground as a base!!!

    I was thinking that the maximum depth be alot deeper, and as you go deeper, there would be certain new dungeons that contain loot that allow you to go deeper (such as a mining ring). Maybe a system like pressure damage when you go too deep without the right gear. I'd like to have new structures, like a spider boss in a labyrinth of cobweb like blocks, and an abandoned enderman worshiping cult that have become crazy enderman like monsters, the possibilities are endless

    I would also have the end game item when beating the ender dragon be a ring that allows you to survive the void in the overworld (bedrock is breakable, but the void kills you otherwise) and as you have all of the endgame gear, you drop and drop under the world until you make it to the ender king, a gargantuant Ender dragon that you must fight in order to access a room full of portals like in minecraft story mode (not as many). The portals in the room would be unbreakable and it would function as a form of new game plus. Stepping into one would generate a new world with altered gravity and spawn conditions. In the portal room would also be a portal back to the overworld so that you can resume the game you were playing. I have a world of a lot more suggestions, but that's all I have time for today. Bye

    I would like to see the mythical "rake" as an added mob in whatever cave update comes, as well as a second kind of bat. A bigger one, maybe rabid vampire bat or something. And cave snakes. We who are terrified of spiders have to deal with those, why not hit on those who have a fear of snakes as well? :)

    Troll Village

    A new kind of village but wait those aren't normal villagers in fact they don't even look like humans!

    The trolls can spawn in different colors and have the health around 10 hearts. They could be decided to be neutral towards players or always attack players and have a chance to steal a random item. Then to obtain the item they stole back you kill them. They can have trolls that live peacefully and then have little troll guards to protect the village.

    How They Would Interact With Mobs

    A troll can maybe ride a spider and use it against you. They could run away from a creeper because they fear being blown up (Although the creeper is friendly towards anything but the player... and cats) Bats could help them fly around in the caves to get an advantage when trying to fight the player.

    What Could The Village Contain??

    The trolls have chest stored in their little huts. What's inside that chest? Well not high tier loot but maybe useful items like name tags, saddles, maybe iron tools, food, etc.

    Tameable?

    This one is up to the devs because the troll could work as a mini companion and help you store extra loot on mining adventures. They might not be able to fight unless you give them a good set of troll armor and sword. Use gold or another mineral to tame the troll

    New items

    • Troll armor
    • Troll weapons? (Like daggers)
    • Troll meat... Ew not to eat of course but for potion making.
    • Potion of poison recipe. A new way to obtain another harmful potion.

    When saying "Mobs spawning only in caves" I assume you mean cave-specific mobs

    Maybe we could add a new redstone circuit like cobalt. It could have its own use too.

    A cave update is necessary, i hate exploring the caves in the game because it's really boring and i always get lost

    They can take some inspiration from the many mods that improves caves, quark is an awesome example

    It sounds great!
    Maybe with the new nether update coming up mojang could use that to add more ores, they already do that with the new snapshot so personally, i don't think minecraft needs just a bunch of new ores to the game, but maybe do more terrain changing like what you did with the nether, maybe mojang could make the caves look cooler and maybe they can even add cave biome, just think of the possibilities!
    We all know the update will eventually come, but if that means that we have to wait to get the best update we can get i will prefer waiting, well see...
