Beyond the Underground (Ice Caves & More!)

This add-on adds new cave types for you to explore. Be careful of deadly mobs along the way, and you'll be able to find valuable ores for you to level-up your gear!

This add-on currently only adds 4 new cave types, but more will be added in future updates.

Luminous Caverns

  • These caves generate exclusively under Mushroom Islands
  • This is a peaceful cave with no natural hostile mobs spawning

  • Combine 8 Luminite Shards and 1 Diamond in a Crafting Table to get 1 Luminite
  • Luminite can be used to craft gear!
  • Luminite gear can burn in fire but is invulnerable to explosions

  • They can be bred using Luminous Mushrooms
  • They spawn in large groups of 4-8
  • They have 8 health (4 hearts) and die almost instantly from lava
  • They run away from the player but can be lured using Luminous Mushrooms

Slimy Sewers

  • These caves generate exclusively under Swamps
  • This is a very dangerous cave with thick green fog, limiting your render distance

Vegetation & Foliage

  • A layer of Slimy Stone replaces Stone on the surface, which slows you down

  • Scorpions spawn in the Limestone Caves
  • They spawn in swarms of 2 to 4
  • They have 16 health (8 hearts)
  • They inflict 10 seconds of Poison every attack
  • They drop Raw Scorpion items on death (or Cooked Scorpion items if died in fire or lava)
  • Vanilla Minecraft Husks also spawn more frequently here, in hordes of 2 to 4


  • Raw Scorpion items drop from Scorpions on death
    • Replenishes 1 hunger point (0.5 bars)
    • Gives you Fatal Poison II for 10 seconds, Nausea III for 8 seconds, and Hunger III for 10 seconds

    • There is a treasure chest in the middle with valuable loot
  • Limestone Dungeons are built using Limestone Bricks. You can craft them using Limestone, and there are many other variants as well!

Ice Caves

  • These caves generate exclusively under frozen biomes
  • Ice can be found everywhere, including dripping icicles and ice crystals

Vegetation & Foliage

  • Ice Crystals, Frosted Stone and Frosted Deepslate replaces most stone on the cave surface
  • Crystallized Ice and Blue Ice make up the cave ceiling
  • Pebbles can be found on the floor
  • Icicles drip from the ceiling


  • Penguins spawn in the Ice Caves and on the surface of frozen biomes
  • They spawn in groups of 3 to 5 on the surface and 2 to 4 underground
  • They have 10 health (5 hearts)
  • Vanilla Minecraft Strays also spawn more frequently here, in armies of 2 to 4


  • Ice Crystal items can be used to brew Freezing potions, which gives you Slowness and Mining Fatigue.


  • Lost Explorer Camps generate under frozen biomes (in ice caves) between Y=-30 and 20.
    • Lost Explorers trade you materials from the surface for things found underground
    • Because of a Minecraft bug, Lost Explorers do not spawn along with the structure. To spawn the Lost Explorer, interact with the Suitcase when holding an Emerald.

Other Blocks

  • Packed Ice Bricks can be crafted using Packed Ice. There is also Chiseled Packed Ice with a snowflake pattern!

Experimental Toggles

  • You can find the toggles in World Settings under the Game section.
  • These toggles must be turned on:
    • Holiday Creator Features
    • Creation of Custom Biomes
    • Experimental Molang Features
  • The Caves & Cliffs toggle is optional. It is recommended to turn it on for better cave generation; but if your device cannot handle it, do not turn it on. The add-on will still function as normal.
  • Backup your world first if you are turning on these toggles on an existing world!

Known Issues

  • The thick green fog from the Slimy Sewers, the yellow fog from the Limestone Caves and the blue fog from the Ice Caves also appear on the surface.
  • Efficiency can be applied to Luminite tools but there will be no effect. This is a Minecraft bug.
  • Due to technical limitations, Radiant Vines, Dripping Slime, Sandy Roots and Dripping Icicles will not break when a supporting block is broken.
  • Due to technical limitations, Luminous Mushrooms, Radiant Vines, Slime Layers, Slimy Blossoms, Slimy Sprouts, Dripping Slime, Sandy Roots, Sand Layers, Dripping Icicles, Ice Crystals and Suitcases do not get destroyed by water or lava and are not able to be waterlogged.
  • Some errors may show up when generating a world. These errors do not affect gameplay in any way and can be safely ignored. To turn off the error log, go to Settings > Creator > turn off “Enable Content Log GUI”.
  • World generation may take a bit longer when this add-on is activated. If the progress bar gets stuck, force close Minecraft and try again. If this repeatedly occurs, open your world without the Caves & Cliffs toggle.
  • There is a known bug in Minecraft 1.17.30 that causes chunk errors in your world. This add-on does not have anything to do with this bug. It is very important to backup your world!


This add-on may decrease performance on lower-end and weaker devices.

Please report any bugs you find! Suggestions are also welcome.

Before you report a bug/glitch/world generation problem, make sure you:
1) have selected the correct subpack
2) are on a supported Minecraft version
3) have tested with no other addons applied and the issue is still there

I would also like to add that if you’re using the wrong subpack, your game could crash.

Other than that, beta is very unstable with frequent crashes so I do not recommend using that version. Please consider downgrading to 1.17.10 or 1.17.20 if possible, or wait until the 1.17.30 betas are more stable.

Thank you!

Hello,I have had a little incompatibility with the enjoy the scuba mod, since this mod has a penguin in its mod, it makes the penguin of your mod come out with its textures bugged until it tries to put the textures of the other mod on top of everything just making the effect revert, so the penguin of the other mod is fine but your penguin comes out with its texture, so I don't know if in a future update you could make your mod compatible with the mod by enjoy the scuba mod

Podrías actualizarlo para la 1.17.34 ya que esa versión no reconoce el paquete y no se puede jugar con el complemento
