Last Maine Craft Screenshot of the upcoming Caves and Cliffs update adds a new and very exciting lively area: Lush Caves. They will eventually be discovered during mining, although in this current snapshot case it can only be explored by creating a custom world.
Lush Caves will change what it’s like to go mining, and are an important part of the Caves update coming this summer. Here’s more information on this shot.
A brand new take on its way out! This time we introduce the Lush Caves Biome. Moreover, we are now using OpenGL Core 3.2 for rendering. More changes and additions in the article. Enjoy! https://t.co/AX9Pixamhs

First of all, take a closer look at the Lush Cave Biome. It includes lots of new plants unique to this biome that will make the caves feel more alive.
Moss grows on all floors and ceilings, and Spore Blossoms grow from the ceiling and drip their particles. These flowers also cause a molecular effect.
Lush Caves will also be a useful new place for spotting mud due to the introduction of mud ponds, in which deciduous plants grow, often surrounded by flowering azaleas and azaleas.
Azaleas are closely related to the Lush Cave biome. If you spot an azalea tree above ground, you may be standing above a new biome, as the roots of the azaleas often point towards the leafy cave.
Lush Caves also features a new light source with cave vines sprouting the glow of berries. This definitely adds to the atmosphere and is one of the most exciting parts of the new Cave update.
Some new blocks have also been added, such as cracked bricks and deep cracked slate tiles, as well as the battered variant of deep plate deep in the ground. New emerald, charcoal, and copper versions of Deepslate were also added to Creative Mode in this shot.
In other news, there have been some changes to the rough’s distribution as part of the team’s ongoing balance changes. There will now be more emeralds in the mountain biome, more lapis lazuli overall, and less copper, gold, and redstone.
Finally, other exciting news comes with the announcement of Minecraft Java migrating to the OpenGL 3.2 core profile. Basically this means that highlighters have become a constant part of the game.
If you previously run Minecraft Java, you may want to check the updated minimum system requirements. The game is clearly a bit more difficult now with new shader support.
