A Lush Cave spills into the Deepest Darkest part of the world, threatening to turn the gray into green! A series of Lush Caves connect into the large cavern making up the Deep Dark in this seed. On the surface? More trees than you'll ever know what to do with as a Dark Oak forest and a Birch Forest biome intersect.

This Deep Dark spawn has more iron than we’ve ever seen. By some luck of the generator, there’s hundreds of veins of iron throughout the Deep Dark just below the spawn. Couple that with some good landmarks nearby and this is a great start for a long-term Minecraft game.
