I've been thinking about what could be done to improve the cave exploring in Minecraft. After visiting a real cave in Texas, I learned and saw a lot about the environment of a cave. Really pretty, but pretty empty... but what I did see was a lot of fresh water filling up the lower cave floor and many Stalagmites and Stalactites!
I was thinking that adding Stalagmites and Stalactites would be a great addition as they could add danger and improve the environment of caves.
Walking over them could damage the player as long as they're moving.
Attempting to break them could cause them to fall and hurt players unless mined by Silk Touch.
Creeper explosions could cause them to fall and hurt entities.
Just a few ideas I had, please consider them!
(Also they take thousands of years to form but it would be cool if they grew over long periods of time)
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
I think some form of stalactite or stalagmite should be added to the game, but i would disagree with the part about it damaging players as they walk over them. Have you tried adding your suggestion to the official "Underground" feedback thread for June? If not you can add it at the official minecraft feedback site, here .
