ItemSprites.png Dark Cave Background (Rarity: 1)

This far-away dirt is speckled with shiny minerals. However, this dirt is in a dark cave (I don't care where you put it, IT IS IN A DARK CAVE!!). Players can only see what's on this tile if it's in their line of sight, or they have special tools.

The Dark Cave Background is an unsplicable non-solid background block which was added as part of the Spelunkorama! update. Multiple layers of Dark Cave Backgrounds are naturally generated in cave-blasted worlds.


As a dark background block, a Dark Cave Background enshrouds the tile it is placed on in darkness.

Light source blocks may provide light to neighboring dark tiles when placed. In a similar manner, a player can illuminate their dark surroundings by equipping certain light source clothes. The Night Vision Goggles disregards darkness completely.

Below is a list of trees that can be made by splicing a Cave Background Seed with another seed.
