      While the vanilla game is pretty lackluster, with modding, the game can be just as engaging as Minecraft.

      You can easily mod and expand this and it is open-source. There's a lot of good mods, like Mesecons or WorldEdit and, as i mentioned before, the modding is much easier (because this is meant to be modded). A really good alternative to MC.

      Very similar but better moddability and code performance. Thus in some respects better than Minecraft.

      The graphics are better than minecraft, the paint feature gives more options when building. There's blocks that aren't just cubes, and the blueprint functionality makes it easy to build towns or cities using community made builds.

      Eirelav911 Based on the style of classic Minecraft, this game is really neat, has a lot of potential, is fun, and hits close to home for those who have played classic Minecraft. I definitely recommend ClassiCube, even as it's own game overall.
