Wanted to create this just like creating one for re6.

How would you change the game's story?

Imo;

1. Add barry and rebecca to main story.
2. Jill doesnt get captured by wesker and is partnered with barry.
3. A longer re5 lin.
4. Chris is partnered with rebecca while sheva is partnered with josh.
5. More uroboros monsters along with a more lethal version.

I would like to see more opinions.

I think the main thing I wish was different is that Jill went with Chris after she was rescued to finish Wesker and Desperate Escape featured a Sheva/Josh team-up. I feel like that would've given everyone a better feeling about what happened in RE5. That was my biggest gripe with Sheva when I first played the game; she took a spot in the final battle I didn't think she deserved.

I would've also liked it if they had Sheva be a little more decisive when things started to hit the fan. She went from telling Chris they needed to get out of there to going with him because they were partners. They could've improved on her character/dialogue to make her seem less throwaway.

And to that effect, they could have dialed back the emphasis on partners throughout. (And not just with Sheva. That word is extremely overused in game.)

Perhaps most importantly, though: Doug should've lived.

I think if this is going to work I think that the main character should be Chris, and him alone. It is simply not fun at all when you have an AI partner in this game, simply annoying. Chris is apart of BSAA, and has been sent into Kijuju after it has been struck in a BOW attack that turned almost everyone there into Manjini. Excella and Wesker are still a thing, and I know one thing, the final battle will not take place in a Volcano.

It's only wishful thinking, but...

- Sheva as a militia member as originally envisioned - and, even if she's still BSAA, no two-players campaign\storytelling. She could have her own scenario (like RE1 and 2) or be playable for some parts of the story (like RE3, C:V and RE4)
- No Plagas but faster zombies (again, as it was the original plan)
- Lost in Nightmares being the actual opening of the game
- No brainwashed Jill in a tight spandex suit (her being in suspended animation and given for dead is enough)
- A bit more background on Tricell
- No Wesker Children (Wesker kind of became a sort of villainous Mary Sue with that last bit)
- Some background on what Wesker did between Code: Veronica and RE5 (a different RE4 would've been required)
- Wesker being the only one who is planning on infecting the whole world by deceiving everyone else (it's hard to believe people would help him)
- No Matrix-style bs
- No volcano
- No boulder punching

I would've kept Umbrella alive, the death of umbrella meant the death of the franchise to me.

RE5 would've been as if Umbrella secretly had a subsidiary in Kijuju that goes by the name "Tricell".
Wesker works for the organization but doesn't know that Tricell is secretly Umbrella's subsidiary who remains in the area to still conduct research on the progenitor virus and Excella is the appointed director of that company, that Wesker doesn't know is related to Umbrella.

As for Spencer, we could extend his life a little bit in RE5 and add a few new characters to represent main scientists and executives in the new umbrella that no one knows about.
And then we can just end the game with Wesker killing Excella after somehow knowing about her involvement with the new umbrella, and fleeing with his unfinished research to an unknown location, while the new Umbrella destroys their lab research in Kijuju to bury any sign of that research.

Not only this kept the real RE story going, but it also opens doors for more ideas for future games, such as the rivalry between Umbrella and the organization, and their activities and experiments on going, and the main characters (Leon, Chris, Ada, ect...) still having some sort of involvement.

So RE CVX establishes that alexia Ashford and Alfred Ashford are the first human clones made by Alexander Ashford used by what is implied the Veronica virus named after his ancestor Veronica Ashford and notice how Alexia and Alfred have mental problems caused by them being clone because that will come in later. In Re cvx albert wesker retrieves a sample of the t-veronica made by alexia fusing the t virus and Veronica virus together. In Re5 at the Spencer estate we see chris and Jill find and fight wesker and he almost kills chris so Jill sacrifices herself to just wound wesker. In the Spencer estate we learn Spencer inv wesker to his estate seemingly to be killed by wesker because he knew how much he hated him and wesker to take his place because of his immune DNA. In Africa in re5 the first scene we see of "Wesker" is him taking a injection for his proto virus even though we know wesker is immune and doesn't need injections at all so something seems to be off. Later on we see chris and sheva fight him near the airship and he seems to be holding back almost like he is not trying to kill them and you see him lose his mind during the fight almost like he knows what is to come soon for him and is very similar to alexia and Alfred mental problems from cloning, during re5 you see this Veronica wesker clone try to compose himself which is not very wesker like with real wesker always calm and stable. When they over inject him and they fight him on the Volcano notice how the uroboros makes him mutate,almost like this not the real immune wesker who can't mutate and would bond with the uroboros. And it is established in umbrella corps that wesker is the new umbrella and alive because it takes place 2 years after re5. What's poetic about that is that wesker in the end became what he hated,Spencer. Also the implications are clear that wesker made this Veronica clone to be a sacrificial decoy for him.Which is very genius and wesker like because,"How do you fight an enemy that is dead to everyone and the world? The answer is you don't fight at all."

I'd be happy enough if they just respected Jill's character more.
