I think its about time for a cave update, the caves havnt seen many huge additions, I think it would be cool just to add something new, like maybe cave plants, and they could be lumonecent plants that glow in the dark. or maybe a whole new biome, like an underground lumonecent forest that could have the same spawn chance as ravines . or maybe a new structure, like a abondonded cave city/village that could be over run with zombie villagers, or possibly active cave villages? the villages could be carved into the walls of the cave, and when u exit one of the houses your in this big wide open cave area or something. and if u had lumonecent flowers then u could turn them into lumonecent dye, anf make glowing wool and stuff! even glow in the dark dog collars! I just think that caves are long overdue for some attention, becuase no matter where u go or what biome your in, you'll allways have caves, and those caves are currently kinda like the old oceans, theyre just missing something new. just an idea :3
I agree, i have had the same ideas. I actually built a village in a deep canyon with lava waterfalls and caves and just popped in villagers. (Lord of the rings dwarf caves inspired)
Really we already have the ability to created villages whereever we want even under water
But i still agree with you.
I also love the idea of like a glowing cavevillage like little glowing blue mushrooms for lights. Maybe some willow type cave trees with glowing red pitcher plant fruits. maybe these could also be consumed for night vision and some other negtative status effect for balancing but crafted or brewed into noght vision potions.
Maybe even a new type of liquid like a glowing poison cave lake.
