Looking for games like Minecraft to explore random worlds!

I'm looking for games that will allow me to lose myself in exploring and interacting with a seemingly endless, randomly generated beautiful natural world.

This is mostly what I do with Minecraft; wander through the landscapes on Peaceful, build a little bit maybe, but I don't really play for the storyline, danger/hacking/killing/looting, or any of that... I just want to walk through strange new landscapes, see things and maybe interact a little (killing if I have to) with the new world... and the best kinds are ones where I know I'm likely the first person to see this 'world', so randomly generated is best. Or one where I could create/edit worlds and landscapes... like in the old Neverwinter Nights editor-- is there anything like that around now?
Also-- the prettier (better graphics) the better; Nethack and Starborne are too flat for me, Minecraft is .... OK, but I miss curves. I would love to find something as pretty as, say, Skyrim, but randomly created and open to being explored or even built within. If there are mods to existing games that might allow this, I'd be interested!
I only have a laptop to game with, but I will be getting a new one soon, and so will try to get one that can run my dream program!
