    Welcome, Miners and Crafters~

    Have you come seeking a challenge? Do you miss the fear and the thrills of your early Minecraft games, as you delved into the depths? Do you turn up your brightness setting to maximum, like a coward? Does feeling your sweaty palms shake on your mouse and keyboard as you terrifyingly encroach into the unknown with only the glowing red eyes of monsters to guide your steps sound like fun to you?

    Then, you've come to the right place! Stoo's Darker Caves is a tiny, miniscule datapack that's sole purpose is to deepen the shadows of the Overworld. That's all it really takes to make the game perfect for your Halloween nights. It's highly akin to the Hardocre Darkness mod of old, except that the effect of Darker Caves is mostly reserved for caves and oceans, where light never reaches.

    There are no performance issues, no compatibility issues with this pack. It works by reducing the ambient light level of the Overworld, making the darkest shadows almost pitch black. An interesting side effect is that Night Vision looks more realistic than before, and might not be the saving grace you hope it will be. Bring torches, tread carefully.

    Good luck! And happy mining ;-)

    This pack comes as an expansion to Subtle Survival Improvements. Check it out when you can!
    Fair warning: This datapack uses functionalities that are still in experimental stages. Only use it when creating a new world.

    Updated Compatibility to 1.16 Exclusive : by Suspicious Stoo 01/29/2021 1:28:51 pmJan 29th, 2021

    Came to my attention that this pack is no longer compatible with Caves & Cliffs snapshots. When snapshots features will stabilize I'll make sure to update this pack with a 1.17 patch.

    In the meantime, I've attached a temporary fix with my other datapacks. If there's demand, I'll post it here too.

    Me too! I'm looking into custom shaders to see if I could make caves darker the lower down you go, but no promises ;-)

    I love the Night Vision! Makes it feel more like night-vision, and not a Potion of Who Cares About Darkness

    The effect applies anywhere where it's dark, including deep down in Ocean crevasses ;-)

    Hey so the caves aren't as dark during the night in fact I can actually see so I changed the ambient light to -0.05 instead it keeps the caves dark at night. you might want to consider this as well
