Are there any modern games like SWG?

Are there any modern games like SWG? A game about a world and not levels, a game without unwanted PVP and many unique sub games like Creature taming, crafting and bio engineering new creatures.

The only other game I found that feels somewhat similar was eve online, but it's gigantic death penality(imagine losing all armor and weapons when you die) and PVP focus turned me off. Anyone know a modern game like SWG?

BTW, I'm talking about pre NGE SWG and not the badly made EQ clone that it became later.

    Give Fallen Earth a try OP.  It's got a SWG feel to it and the crafting is pretty well done.

     

    Asherons Call is a very in depth game as well.  The graphics are dated, and the population isn't what it once was but still a fun MMO with a decent tinkering(crafting) system.

    As it's been said in a previous post, The Repopulation seems to be the next SWG. Go see their web site: http://www.therepopulation.com/. That's all we have for the moment but you'll surely recognize most of the features that made SWG a great MMORPG plus more.

    If you're even remotely careful it's so damn difficult to lose a ship in EVE.

    I have just tried fallen earth and it indeed seems to be a world game(rather then a level/themepark game) without  unwanted PVP. I have only briefly played it, so I shall need to try it out more.

    I thought Asherons Call was a level/themepark game?

    Repopulation looks interesting but making a game look interesting before release is far easier then making a good game. So let's see how this turns out.

    AC has levels yes, but it is a skill based sandbox type game. 

     

    You can make your character however you want and do whatever you want within the world.

           TSW is nothing like SWG was....ITs more like SWTOR  where its a single player game with too many cutscenes and driven by a single story line.

    Out of anything out or coming down the road, I think what will foster the most SWG like in game environment will be Shroud of the Avatar, say what you will about it being a true MMO yadda yadda, it has the right rulesets in place to encourage such a community.
