Starting a new survival Minecraft world is always a fun adventure. Starting from scratch and progressing through the game to completion is a really unique and interesting experience. Each seed is different, and no two runs can have the same progression.

Playing in a survival world, especially if players have known Minecraft for a while can get a bit repetitive. This is where survival mods come into play, as they can add a bunch of content to the game without entirely altering how the game is played.

From adding biomes and mobs to expanding cave systems, modifying additions to the game work to improve the game and keep it fresh for all sorts of players.

Until the upcoming 1.17 update, caving has almost always been the same. Cave generation is extremely similar and boring to explore after a while.

The extended caves mod changes that completely. With new stone types, different ores, and a whole bunch of different generated cave biomes, caving has never been more fun. New dangers and loots are to be found underground, and every player can find something to enjoy about mining now.

Although this is a simple mod, it really adds a lot of content to the game and makes the entire mining and caving experience more enjoyable.

With the addition of other mods comes a whole load of new blocks, and not everyone has the time to check through hundreds of chests. This is where the iron chests mod comes in.

This mod allows players to, over time, upgrade their chests from wooden to iron, then gold, diamond, and even obsidian and glass chests. This is a beneficial mod because each chest upgrade adds more of inventory space for each chest, allowing players to store so many more stacks of blocks in each chest.

If a chest gets filled up, all players have to do is upgrade it, and they'll have more space. This is a really great yet simple mod to add into Minecraft, and players really only notice just how handy it is once they start using it.
