    If there was a cave update it also needs a new cave boss!

    It could spawn in a rare underground structure.

    also maybe creeper variants??

     

    like one creeper dropping ores rather than gunpowder?? rarity would also depend on ore rarity in the biome you're in

    A new ore for caves could also be a good new addition

    overall, anything to make caves more wondrous place of exploration rather than a place to acquire stone, iron, gold, redstone, lapis and diamonds.

    I agree a cave update should happen.

    add some gems maybe some cave mobs that spawn only in specific cave biomes?

    new variants to mineshafts and maybe do something with the dungeons that you find making them harder and less like a little square in the ground with some chest and a single monster spawner and more like an actual dungeon.

    Rare crystal caves with a new rare ore would be cool

    I would love to see some more things underground, but I, unlike many others, actually don't want new blocks or minerals. Just new structures to explore, and if it feels too empty, maybe a cave-dwelling Villager variation or a new underground-only mob. Although I do understand that it would be hard to work other algorithms around it, like you presumably had to do to make sure things like underwater ruins didn't overlap with other underwater structures.

    Mojang, Microsoft, please. This has been the Minecraft subject that has never had any change but demands the most change. When we get a good underground, which is thrilling, exciting, scary and unpredictable, half of the game's purpose has been updated (MINEcraft, huh). More variants in cave generation, creepy mobs, a deeper underground, interestong ruins, and I could go on and on and on. I don't care if this comment won't make a difference but I think it is my duty and purpose to try and convince anyone with any power over the game to read this and understand that everyone wants it. Amazingness underground!

    Yes. Caves should have biomes. Mojang should put a LARGE amount of effort into making some proper cave biomes.

    Each cave biome should have unique amounts of different materials and ores, unique shapes for material/ore structures/veins, unique structures/rules for structures, and unique mob spawning/mobs.

    I’d also love new ores for new types of utility blocks or make like the tinker’s construct mod in the vanilla game

    Maybe Jungles can have exclusive caves that could resemble caves where people go cave diving in real life

    We need caverns.

    Cavern are enormous caves that have stalactites and stalagmites in them

    Thinking we should have more underground structures in Minecraft, both in Java Edition and Bedrock Edition. The common ones are dungeons and mineshafts. Almost never do Minecrafters spend time away from sunlight all because there is little reward in the stone under the world. Consumers generally get very excited when new structures are added to the game. The Nether is quite barren with the same landscape again and again and the occasional stronghold every 800 or so blocks. A totally new nether mob could be the thing...

    Maybe a new "marble" block that, just like andisite, granite, and diorite you can polish

    Yeah totally but it’s not coming in 1.15 because mojang doesn’t care about their game’s community 

    and their game. Almost every thing I post NEVER gets looked at by them. Try to repost this everyone 

    cave update for 1.15! Let’s change their minds!

    Here are my thoughts

    -[New Ores and gems] New ores with new tools or craftables would be nice. What would be great is new gems that can make more magic based weapons (staff, wands etc.) and since villagers use emeralds as currency currently I think in the new update different villages should use different gems as currency depending on their biome.

    -[New Items]I also think we should get an ore/mineral such as copper that can make industrial machinery that can be activated by redstone. Such as a timed dispenser or locks . Pipes could be cool but might be too difficult.

    -[New Structures] I think our "dungeons" should be completely revamped to an underground structure with corridors and rooms, I know it sounds similar to a stronghold but perhaps a place with locked doors that you have to find the key to get to the next room, also it should be made out of material that cannot be broken until they get a special pickaxe in the last room that way no one can just break through. I think they should add a new type of illager that has a miner theme that lives in these structures.

    these are just a few ideas :)

    Personally, I would think a cave update would kind of split Minecraft's community, just like 1.9. Many people would like to play the older versions for the nostalgic feel of caving, and many others, including myself, would enjoy a change with the caves. New gems, armor, weapons, and things to do would make the game a LOT more fun.

    Undead miners that drop iron tools, bread, rotten flesh, and random ores

    I do not think we need more ores. Copper would be pointless, as would tin. We have stone and diamond for a reason! Just make caves biome-specific, or at least not just boring holes.

    The caves haven't been touched in years, and with the recent updates revamping really basic biomes, it's about time for the caves to be up next.

    I want caves to generate more because there is not a lot of caves to find

    Maybe a new cave boss that throws the nearest thing he could grab at you (example: dirt, stone, ore, obsidian etc.) Or something to do with caves.

    Make certain cave pockets with ores, e.g. you could hit a shut in cave ( where you have to mine to it by searching or whatever )  full of ores or even add new "old" buildings underground to make cave exploring more exciting or just even add more detail to the cave so it's more pleasing to look at as the majority spend half of their minecraft time in these caves!

    I believe the Nether and Caves could use more mobs, these are some mobs I either liked from the comments, or ones I just made up~
    Abandoned Miners in Mineshafts: I have seen this one alot, and fully agree that it would be awesome to see. They could be hostile mobs armed with pickaxes and mining head lamps, these head lamps could have a chance to drop when killed, and could light your way when you wear it.
    Sharks: I think everyone wants sharks at this point lol, and I saw a comment regarding underground oceans. Perhaps sharks spawn only in these oceans. They could drop Shark Teeth when killed, which could be used to make arrows with higher damage.
    Pheonix: We need more flying mobs like the Phantom, and this would be a good addition. Pheonixs would spawn in the Nether and lava filled Caves, soaring around, perched on rocks, or even submerged in lava. I think a easy way to make it leave you alone is to wear a turtle shell, since a Pheonix would not like water.
    Give Strays Ice Abilities: Give them freezing arrows and add them to frozen caves.
    A big idea I have had for a while was to add ANOTHER DIMENSION as well!!! I think it could be the opposite of the Nether, a frozen world of snow, precious loots, and ice-based mobs. Instead of lava, it could have very darken water that freezes the player within seconds. Perhaps you could get armor or enchantments to not freeze up?

    Thanx for reading :)
