Voxelands, though it crashed a few times when I played it too, has that mhm 'innocent' allure of pure childish play and is really very charming and worth preserving. And the features you've listed above are indeed of big importance for the general feel -- in my opinion this game unwittingly(?) followed the paradigm of the "voxel structure" (as opposed to "voxel form", where not only the grid but also the shapes are cube-modular).

Not really, otherwise diagonal structures like diagonal roofs or diagonal fences wouldn't be there. Also, the corner rails are curved.

But interesting idea.
