YUNG’s Better Mineshafts

YUNG’s Better Mineshafts adds 9 new biomes to mineshafts alongside some major updates that give them more life or lack thereof in the case of them being abandoned. The mod expands existing mineshafts to make them more interesting and adds more structures to make them more realistic. You’ll notice right away the vertical tunnel that can go down an incredible distance.

The shafts are much more detailed now and show more evidence that they were once occupied. They’re also wider and taller with more artifacts to find.

The new biomes correlate to the biomes they are under. So if you’re near a desert or tundra, the mineshaft could be made of sandstone or covered in snow and ice. And jungle mineshafts are full of vines up the walls.

You may come across abandoned workstations and outposts and there are even certain tunnels that end with large veins of certain ores!

This mod also requires an API found here.

  1. If I have your mod installed, is there a chance to still run into the original mineshafts, as well? I was wondering, because that happened to me. I was so disappointed it was a normal mineshaft and not yours….

    • I believe you may still run into the original mineshafts as well as YUNG’s but I can’t say for sure. If you check the forum link at the bottom of the review you can comment to the developer directly over at curseforge.
