    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

  • Avatar

    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.

    More new ores aswell.

    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 :)

    heres my idea (and i'm sure others have said this), what about ghost/ skeleton miners? zombie miners? when they die, sometimes they drop the same loot as the regular mobs (besides ghost, because that mob doesn't exist, but is close to the ghast), but may also drop a pick of some sort and/or a miner's helmet. the miner's helmet can be worn and will reduce damage of falling gravel and can give you a couple shank's time to get out of a lava pit. could be useful.

    You should put more ore to make more armor and tools

  • Avatar

    I'm hoping that we do get a cave update, but I'm thinking we're going to get another combat update next, perhaps with new wepons and stuff due to the fletching table and smithing tables being useless as of now, but hopefully caves willbe fixed up in 1.16?

    I feel like they should add more ores of different colors. They will have unique mechanics. An example is ruby. It can be used to create decorative blocks and even for armor! :) Ruby armor would be one of the strongest kind of armor in the game. The armor would be red and you can swim in lava for 5 seconds if you have the full set. Another example is cobalt. It would work similarly to red stone but will have more power. These are my ideas for the cave update when it comes out. ;)

    This idea is amazing =DDD
    I love this and I hope Mojang will make a cave update in Minecraft 1.15.I don't like the new combat mechanics in the 1.14 Combat test beacause they're awful
    Mojang pls,update the cave

  • Avatar

    Increase world depth. Bedrock comes too soon, and the world seems to have too little space. Make things vast, and create room to add more ores and new cave systems/ underground structures.

    More ore and stone spikes?!please

    This need to be added into the game

    Mojang, I got a great idea for a Cave Update is that we need Amethyst, Ruby, Labradorite, Kyanite, Sapphire, and Citrine. After that Mojang, can we please have where Bats could attack you and drop some useful items.

  • Avatar

    We definitely need a cave update, maybe Cobalt can be added as both a reference and a new ore. Ruby can also make a come back in a different way since emeralds have their place already.

    You sound like a cave enthusiast XD

    Good idea though! I agree 100%

    I certainly agree that a cave update is due, but I also think that combat, mostly for java edition, needs updating as well. Seeing how combat isn't as big compared to a re-work to an entire world feature, it would most definitely be fitting to combine the two. I could see Mojang taking inspiration from the "Tinkers' Construct" mod by allowing you to use the fletching and smithing tables to forge new weapons with their own unique qualities (maybe new kinds of weapons, or maybe giving already existing ones new "traits," sort of like starting enchantments and/or new abilities). As for the combat, the current snapshot where you just hold the button in for melee weapons is easy. A ravager's loot can get ravaged in seconds! Perhaps they could add this functionality to a new, weaker weapon, like a katana for example, but keep the old functionality for a heavier weapon/tool, like axes, swords, etc. If you added different weapons with different "combat modes," you'd have a fighting style for everyone, which ropes in to the possible uses for the smithing table. With these major ideas for Minecraft alone of cave transformations and a combat rewrite, the next update for Minecraft would be revolutionary!

    What about some new underground structures with some loot in it? Or something like abandoned underground base, but not a mineshaft. Like bed and crafting table with a furnace next to chest with full of cave resources. I think caves doesn’t need so much of new stuff... just a little bit more of exploring.

  • Avatar

    You could add things that were previously in a game but deleted later, like Ruby (worse than diamond but better than iron) and a helmet with a flashlight. Im the type of player that doesn't like going to the caves beacuse they are dark and scary, so what about ores that glow in darkness? (without touching them) Maybe you could add some more use to bats? It would also be nice to see refreshed version of spawner rooms. (one of them is basically a cobblestone box). The word "mine" is a part of a game so I think this update is really important

    I'm here to show my support for this update. Mojang developers and community engagement may believe not everyone wants this, but I believe it's important that anyone who supports an overhaul or special attention for caves in a major update needs to not just tweet it, but vote for it! We need to prove how important we feel it is!

    Great idea! Maybe not so much on mobs only in caves though but overall I think it will add a whole new aspect to the game.

    More ores

    The part with mobs spawning only in caves sucks, because no on will light his base on the surface, because monsters will not spawn
