YUNG's Better Caves completely overhauls Minecraft's cave systems. Caves are small and unassuming at the surface, but the deeper you go, the crazier things get. You'll find lava caverns, underground lakes and rivers, flooded caverns, and more!

Better Caves is the most powerful and customizable Minecraft cave mod, with dozens of options and support for dimension-specific configurability. Want the Nether to have some worm-like caves? You got it. Want The Beneath to be spotted with treacherous lakes filled with poison? Easy. For information on how to use the extensive configuration, see the wiki!

If you're looking for a Vanilla+ experience, Better Caves does that as well. Check out the Official Presets!

Compatibility Notes

Better Caves works with all major worldgen and oregen mods.

1.12.2

  • OTG: Must be v8+. A few certain versions since also do not work - see their Discord for info
  • Roguelike Dungeons: I recommend setting encase=true in the RD config to prevent dungeonis from getting torn up
  • Worley's Caves: If both are enabled in the same dimension, Worley's Caves will take over cave gen, although Better Caves will still generate its ravines.

1.14.4

  • Forge 28.1.85-86 may cause crashes
  • Worley's Caves: If both are enabled in the same dimension, Better Caves will generate. Worley's will be completely ignored.

1.15.2

  • Worley's Caves: If both are enabled in the same dimension, Better Caves will generate. Worley's will be completely ignored.
