Ah the good old UV times..
I think you should buy AE right now.
In fact there is a Guadalcanal Scenario included with AE which covers nearly the same area and timeframe
that represents the UV Grand Campaign.
The advantage of this is that you have all the interface and order setting improvements that where not available
in good old UV times.
To name only a few: setting maximum AC ranges, setting search arcs, converting ships, direct control over raplacement
planes and pilots, detailed combat replays, a more sophisticated naval combat model, more detail to ship damage, detailed
pilot experience levels, more detailed plane models with performance levels based on altitude bands, cleaner A2A war model,...
I could go on for 2 pages worth of improvements compared to UV.
Playing Guadalcanal Scenario is not more complicated than playing UV and you will like it much better. UV was good in its time
but this time is over. WitP AE patch2 is the new Queen.
