This data pack adds a configurable chance that natural stones will collapse in randomly shaped chunks when you go mining, to make mining more dangerous and exciting. Pickaxes enchanted with Unbreaking lessens the chance of a cave in, and higher levels of Unbreaking decrease the chance further.

This data pack supports all stone types added by my Underground Overhaul data pack.

By default, there is a 20% chance that stone and cobblestone in the Overworld, below sea level (Y=63), will collapse when mined, and a 20% chance that netherrack in the Nether will collapse when mined. Each collapsing block has a 50% chance to collapse each adjacent natural stone type block, but the maximum number of blocks that can collapse at once is 16. If you'd like to change these settings, you can find the configuration file at "data\cave_collapse\functions\config.mcfunction" within the zip file of the data pack. There is also a feature that allows end stone in the End to collapse when mined, but this is disabled by default.

More information about data packs and how to use them can be found on the official Minecraft Wiki.

Version 6 : 02/21/2020 4:37:09 pmFeb 21st, 2020

  • Changed cave in sound so it's less abrupt.
  • Cave in sound now only plays once per collapse, rather than once per block, so it's not as loud.

Can't change it to "force" the players to make mine strcuture? like ones on the abandoned mineshafts, if you put wood columns it lowers or removes the cance of collapse in certain radius, forcing the player to structure mines and give some more value to wood, no just mindless picking

Not without creating a lot of lag every time the data pack has to search for wooden supports.

maybe you could use functions similar to the ones used by treecapitator mods to check for leaves?

I could, but even Treecapitator is laggy when it searches for blocks. Additionally, I'd rather keep the degree of freedom the player has currently with regard to how they build their own protections against cave-ins.

I'm glad you're enjoying it! If you reduce the volume of the Blocks volume slider it should be quieter.

Ooh thank you for the sound fix.
Playing with headphones on and I'd often jump out of my skin when the super loud crashes happened!

I ended up tweaking the files myself to lower the volume, but that was several weeks ago now :)
