What UV has desperately needed from the beginning is a campaign scenario that builds Midway into the mix. You start with the May 1, 1942 resources, play through the end of June, and then, Midway is resolved (by the computer, outside your control). Then, the scenario resumes, and all reinforcements and replacements are adjusted (again, by the program) in accordance with the Midway outcome. Some provision would have to be made for ship withdrawals (for example, if Lexington survives past a certain date, she is withdrawn for commitment to the Midway campaign. Variable withdrawal of Japanese ships, particularly Shokaku and Zuikaku, could be built in to counter the automatic tendency for the Allied player to be extremely conservative in his play).
There should be an entire range of Midway possible outcomes, from American decisive victory through Japanese decisive victory. After that, you sink or swim on your own in the Southern Pacific.
Put my faith in the people
And the people let me down.
So, I turned the other way,
And I carry on anyhow.
