  • Minecraft’s Caves & Cliffs update revamped world generation, making caves grander and more expansive than ever before.
  • A Reddit user shared coordinates to an impressive cave in their survival world, showcasing the game’s natural beauty.
  • The update brought significant enhancements to procedural generation, showcasing Mojang’s continuous improvements to the game.

An avid Minecraft player shows off some images of an incredible cave they found when exploring their primary survival mode world. In recent years, Mojang has made several significant enhancements to the procedural generation in Minecraft, meaning that fans are discovering more impressive natural structures in the game than ever before. This cave in particular exemplifies these improvements perfectly.

Mojang’s massively popular sandbox survival game has received overhaul after overhaul since its 2009 inception. Some of Minecraft‘s best updates over the years were the ones that brought key upgrades to the foundations of the game, like 2016’s Combat Update, 2019’s Village & Pillage update, and 2020’s Nether Update. However, as exciting as these were, none of them shook Minecraft‘s world to its very core like 2021’s Caves & Cliffs update did, and quite literally at that. The aptly-named two-part update revamped the way caves were generated in the game by making them grander and more expansive. One player, in fact, decided to take some screenshots to show off just how impressive the changes made in Caves & Cliffs were.

A Reddit user by the name of Ok_Figure_4181 made a post on the r/Minecraft subreddit, asking fans to share their discoveries of impressive procedurally generated worlds in the game that blew them away when they first saw them. To get the conversation rolling, the Redditor provided some images of their own, showcasing a stunning cave they found in their “main survival world,” right after Caves & Cliffs: Part 2 came out. The massive, dimly-lit cave in question was generated beside a lake and had what resembled an eerie pillar of sorts in the center of it, making it seem like it was almost hand-crafted.

The screenshots of the cave have direct coordinates pointing toward its exact location on the map, meaning that players who use the seed 1571309911 will be able to visit and explore the naturally-generated structure for themselves. However, there’s a catch. According to Ok_Figure_4181, this world of theirs was created in an older version of Minecraft‘s Bedrock Edition. Given that it isn’t easy to downgrade to older, non-Java versions of Minecraft, it’s possible that the world this impressive cave is in will be lost to time in the future. Fortunately, though, this seed still seems to work on current versions of the game.

The Caves & Cliffs Update Took Procedural Generation in Minecraft to the Next Level

A few years ago, the majority of Minecraft‘s caves weren’t that interesting to look at. Players often found themselves in caves that were not only static in layout, but also lacking in width and depth. Luckily, the Caves & Cliffs update really improved the world generation in the game, as is evident by the impressive natural structures that Minecraft fans have recently been discovering and sharing on social media.
