Caverns is a mod dedicated to improving the Minecraft mining aspect and partially adding that much-requested cave update, by adding a ton of new underground structures. It also adds some extra stuff like a new ore, powerful weapons and armour, and 3 flint tools because flint in vanilla has few uses besides flint and steel and arrowheads.
This mod is too big to flesh out fully in the description, so I'll sum everything up best as I can.
113 mod elements!!
Added Titanium, between Iron and Diamond. Slightly more common than diamond. Same stats as diamond, but weaker armour. Mine ore, smelt it to get ingot, craft stuff. Can craft a Spear, which attacks 0.1 slower than a sword and deals 1 less damage than one, but only needs 2 sticks + 1 ingot. Higher durability than diamond.
Flint Tools (kind of)
Adds three tools craftable out of flint and sticks. Flint Spear deals 5.5 dmg, can't mine any blocks. Craft with 2 sticks and 1 flint. Flint Axe deals 4 dmg, otherwise same as a stone axe (except durability) Craft with 2 sticks, 3 flint. Flint Knife is effective on all leaves, all wool, and bamboo. Deals 3 dmg, 1.6 attack speed. Craft with 1 stick and 1 flint.
Only generate in the Crystal cave structures and the Geode Cavern structure. Comes in 4 different colours, red, green, blue, and yellow. Breaking it gives you 3 crystal shards of the corresponding colour. 9 crystal shards can be crafted into a Crystal block, which can be used to craft armour and a sword. 1 stick, 2 crystal blocks of THE SAME COLOUR = Crystal Sword. Each colour has the same stats, 9 dmg, and higher durability than diamond, same for armour, which has no dmg but gives 4 more armour points than diamond + same armour toughness as diamond. Silk Touch doesn't affect crystal blocks!
Lightflowers and Cave Fruit
Cave Fruit are melon-like blocks that spawn randomly in caves. Mine one (with anything, but axes work best) to get Lightflower Seeds. Plant these seeds on farmland to instantly get a Lightflower. When destroyed, Lightflowers drop 2 Lightflower Seeds. A Lightflower provides a high light level, the light being matched by only vanilla light sources (torches, lanterns etc.) and Lightshroom objects. Lightflowers can be grown on grass, but seeds only plant on farmland, and the actual Lightflower is unobtainable in survival. Lightflowers are decorative natural light sources; otherwise, they are useless.
New structures (lots)
Geode Cavern: Large cavern with crystal blocks scattered around the edges. Rare. In the middle of the cavern, a giant red crystal geode floats above an exactly circular lava lake. Also has a ring of stone bricks around the lava with evenly spaced 4 redstone torches.
Crystal Caves (red, green, blue, and yellow): Crystal caves are small caves that don't lead anywhere but contain 5 crystal blocks of the same colour. The colour is random.
Miner Camp: A small cave that contains a campfire, an empty chest and a brown bed. By far the commonest structure.
Lightshroom Cave: A cave that contains a small pond and has unique grass as a floor, along with unique mushrooms. The grass is called Lightshroom Grass and glows brightly. Lightshrooms grow on this grass and make light even brighter. 2 Giant Lightshrooms generate here, with glowing stems and tops, which grow as brightly as normal Lightshrooms. All Lightshroom stuff is cyan for no real reason. These can spawn anywhere underground but spawn more frequently under Mushroom Island biomes.
Egyptian Tomb: A sandstone structure that only spawns under Deserts. It has an entrance, which will most likely be blocked off by stone. Inside, pillars decorate the sides, while a sarcophagus is visible. The sarcophagus has a loot chest (only good stuff, I assure you), but if you open it, you will receive a nasty surprise.
Tree Cave: Same layout as Lightshroom Cave. Only spawns underneath Forests (oak only). Has a small pond, two oak trees, and some flowers. The ground is podzol with some coarse dirt patches.
Birch Tree Cave: Exactly the same as the normal Tree Cave, except only spawns under Birch Forests and has birch trees instead of oak.
Gold Mine: A room with a gold ore deposit of 7 blocks, with a tunnel and supports branching off, but cobblestone blocks the tunnel after 4 blocks. Nothing is behind the cobblestone. Only generates under Badlands.
Wooden Supports Cave: A cave with lots of supports made of spruce logs and planks holding the roof up. Only generates under Taiga and Redwood Taiga biomes.
Icy Wooden Supports Cave: Same supports as normal Wooden Supports Cave, but ground, walls, and the ceiling are made out of Blue Ice and Snow Blocks. Only spawns under Snowy Taiga.
Witch's Lair: A small cave with a small patch of podzol with mushrooms growing on it with some skeleton heads lying around. A witch will spawn here upon world generation. Only spawns under Swamp biomes.
Ice Cave: Only spawns under Snowy Tundra and Ice Spikes, and also Snowy Mountains. It's just a small cave made out of Snow Blocks and Blue Ice.
Jungle Tree Cavern: A cavern with the floor made out of Grass Blocks. In the middle, a large, custom made jungle tree reaches up to the ceiling. Only spawns under Jungles and Bamboo Jungles.
Dwarven Fortress: A structure made out of Dwarven Brick, a unique block. Has an entrance, empty room, 4- bed bedroom with grey beds, and 4 forge rooms, with a fireplace made of cobblestone and netherack and an anvil each. Only spawns under (or inside) mountains. All the inhabitants seem to have disappeared...
Titanium Mine: Same as Gold Mine, but has Titanium Ore instead of gold. Only spawns under Plains and Savannah biomes.
Disturbed Bone Pit: Same as Gold and Titanium Mines, but has no ores in the main room. Instead, the room generates chock-full of skeleton skulls, with a few bone blocks scattered about. Only generates under Roofed Forests.
Termite Nests: Large dirt caves with Termite Spawners. Only spawn under Savannah biomes.
Termites: New Mob.
Dwarves: New race, with two mobs. One is passive, other is neutral and attacks you with an axe if you hit any dwarf nearby.
Undead Miners: Pickaxe-wielding undead that spawn in the lower layers of the world.
