We're excited to announce that on Sunday, January 30, 2022 6:00 PM, The Cavern will be undergoing much needed maintenance. Thanks to the tremendous support the community has shown us, we've been able to achieve the ability to custom order a new dedicated server. While our RAM and Disk space are staying similar in size, our CPU is being upgraded to an AMD Ryzen 9 5900x. While this upgrade does significantly increase our monthly upkeep, we truly believe it was needed for the future expansion of The Cavern.
During this downtime we'll be taking the opportunity to upgrade the server to the latest version of Minecraft Java (1.18.1). This also means that our Resource world will be reset once again in order to allow everyone the opportunity to explore the new 1.18.1 world generations. Regarding the existing Main world, we currently have no active plans on resetting it. If you're unaware, Mojang also increased the max height limit to 319 and lower limit to -64...
Our December Content Update has finally arrived! Here are the changes listed below.
* Christmas Event
Every 2 hours, an announcement will appear in the global in-game chat that the Elf Village is under siege. Upon clicking on the [Click Here] message (or typing /xmas) it'll teleport you inside the Christmas Event World, where if you follow the path will lead you up to a cave where the Icebreaker Yeti awaits you. Upon slaying it, everyone participating will have a chance to receive 1 - 3 candy canes that can be spent in the limited time Christmas shop which can be accessed by using /christmas.
Special thanks to AndIAmTheReaper, Fudqey, and Candii for helping build the Christmas Event World.

* Halloween Spawn
A handful of individuals have been tirelessly at work ensuring that the spawn would be given a spooky look to it, and thanks to them it has happened!
In case you haven't heard, The Cavern hosted a build competition with the concept of a 1-chunk-challenge! We received lots of submissions, so I'd like to say good job to everyone who participated. You all handled the theme very creatively. I'd also like to give a huge thanks to our judges who helped with this event!
Now let's give you those results!

The cavern is finally turning a year old as of May 22, 2021. When launching, we had high expectations for not only the community but for those running and protecting it. To put in perspective the growth we have had in a single year, let me give you some numbers.
We have managed to greet over 42,000 unique players across both Minecraft Java and Bedrock editions. Those 42,000 players have interacted with over 1.192 Billion blocks across our main world, and various nether, end, and resource worlds. With those blocks, those players have managed to create, destroy, and explore over 2,700 towns, and create a little over 35 nations. Leadership has made over 200+ changes to the server which can all be seen in our Changelog channel on the discord! It’s because of your votes that the server can keep growing, and combine, the server has 335,000 total votes. Currently, there is $344,200,000 between all the registered players, and...
