Additions[]

World generation[]

Caves
  • Added new noise caves, which come in two types: "spaghetti" and "cheese" caves.
  • Added flooded aquifer caves.
  • The old "carver" cave generation still generates, combining with the new caves.
Spaghetti caves
  • Long, narrow caves.
  • Utilize noise generators for generation.
  • Can form cave entrances when they intersect with land.
Cheese caves
  • Utilize noise generators for generation.
  • Often form caverns of various sizes.
  • Can form cave entrances when they intersect with land.
Aquifers
  • Used to generate bodies of water in new caves.
  • Currently only used below Y=31, meaning any noise caves between Y=31 and Y=63 are flooded with water. This will be fixed.
  • Replaces the old underwater cave carvers/canyons.
  • Fish, axolotls, and glow squid spawn in aquifers if it is under an ocean or river.
