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. Silk touch enchanted tools don't trigger cave ins, so you're safe if you're using one.

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 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.

  • Altered the collapse logic to not convert the recently mined item entity into a falling block; you don't have to mine the same block twice now.

Is there way to avoid collapsing like building some thing like mineshaft to hold the blocks from collapsing

BTW I like the idea it makes the gameplay little bit realistic

Thanks, I'm glad you like it!

You can always build a roof over your head out of something other than natural stone, and that should keep you safe. Tools with the silk touch enchantment also can't trigger cave ins, so you'll be safe using them too.
