A Dungeon generates upon world generation and uses some basic rules to spawn and these are:

  • The floor must be solid
  • The ceiling must be solid
  • The walls must have 1-5 openings

If all these conditions are met then the Dungeon is spawned. After this, the room starts to spawn the two chests. In some cases however, only one chest will spawn. Regardless, the dungeon always contains a mob spawner in the middle of the room.
