A dark cave where one can hear Ambience.

Ambience (or Cave Noises) is any variety of eerie sounds that can play when the player is in a dark cave. Ambience is composed of many sudden sounds and can play at any time. Living on top of a ravine, cave or dungeon can cause them to occur in the player's house. Ambience will not play if torches are placed as the player mines or turns off the ambience volume (1.7.2).

  • Ambience do not direct to ores, dungeons or strongholds, they direct to unexplored caves.
  • As of 1.2.1, ambience can now be heard in multiplayer.
