Caves are natural structures also marked on your map. Ores, Gems and monsters are most commonly found inside including chests. More valuable ores, gems and tougher enemies spawn deeper in caves. Who knows what lurks? Are you prepared to plumb the depths, adventurer?
Work in Progress
I'm trying to understand how those files work in order to get their drop rate and ennemy spawn : https://gitlab.com/veloren/veloren/-/blob/master/world/src/layer/cave.rs https://gitlab.com/veloren/veloren/-/tree/master/assets/common/cave_scatter
Currently there are seven cave biomes randomly generated from various parameters and set of rules that define : humidity, temperature, stalatic, depth level and their respective ecosystem.

Sprite : Cave Mushroom (0.15) Mushroom (0.25), Grass blue (1), moonbell (0.01)
Dusty cave 0.01 (z=2)
Dusty cave is the deadliest cave, mostly due to Antlions also several strong monsters that will challenge you if you don't thread carefully.
