    Description

      As the summary says, pointed dripstone clusters tend to generate too much frequently with thickness "tip" (smallest) on really big caves. From what I've noticed, it occurs when these clusters mostly don't have stalactites above them within a noticeable range, but i might be wrong tho. This doesn't happen on ceiling clusters or inside small caves (at least from what I've seen).

      Observed result

      Clusters of stalagmites generate only "tips" on most of the floor of big/tall caves.

      Expected result

      Pointed dripstone with size variation, like how they generate on the ceiling or inside small caves.

      How to reproduce

      1. Generate a single biome world of dripstone caves.
      2. Explore on spectator mode, try to find big noise caves.
      3. You might notice how most of the time, dripstone clusters generate with thickness "tip" in these caves.
      4. Alternatively, you can go to the surface of the world and see how most of pointed dripstone generate as tips.
