    So basically what you're saying is that there should only be one version of everything, ever, and that nothing should be improved or rebuilt.

    No, I was just commenting a fun fact. Manic Digger is heavily inspired by Minecraft on three levels.

    Well actually its no improvment, we will see, if there is any improvment it would be nice :D. At least the minecarts seem to work better than in minecraft :)

    Maybe minecarts work better, but do you have PvP? PvE? Redstone? Monsters? Computers built inside the game? The list goes on…

    That answer was a mistake! Now i can put up the "hey, it's in development!!!"-Defense Shield :D

    But you're right i think his project would be cool if it just weren't a mere "copy" of minecraft just with better graphics. So i think let him work and lets see what comes out in the end. This guy has a much harder job than notch .. cause notch had fans motivating him, here i see mostly haters.

    Unfortunately, true. Basically, it needs something unique. It can also be argued that manic digger doesn't have better graphics, since it is mixed style, which usually doesn't work. (retro: blocks, normal: textures) If it had GOOD modding support (with modding-specific libraries) and was on the jvm, it would clearly use it over minecraft ('till minecraft gets modding (probably in a month (i hope))).
