Updated: Oct 2, 2019 | 25 views |

YUNG’s Better Caves Mod 1.12.2 is a mod that completely overhauls vanilla Minecraft’s cave generation. Better Caves adds never-before-seen types of caves and caverns for you to explore.
Experience winding, turbulent caves, and vast, lava-filled caverns!



Extreme Flexibility:

Better Caves includes an extensive user configuration, allowing players to cater cave generation to their liking. You can easily change the size, shape, and frequency of different cave and cavern types.

These settings can be found in the Mods option in Minecraft’s main menu screen.


Others Features:

  • Overhauls cave generation with multiple types of winding caves and large caverns
  • Full user customizability for all types of caves and caverns, including size and frequency
  • Includes options for “bedrock flattening” in both the overworld and the nether, getting rid of annoying scattered bedrock and replacing it with a flat layer of the user’s preferred width
  • Supports integration with Minecraft’s vanilla caves, if enabled
  • Control cave biomes’ sizes with the click of a button
