Well the IJN a little bit more power than the USN in the area
The disabling of Hiyo and Zuiho at the beginning has rebalanced the forces


The outcome was still a tactical victory for the Japanese
I feel the US could have lost both Enterprise and Hornet at Santa Cruz

I understand. It is actually far more powerful  in SCI: I think on average 10%-30% of a time that all 3 US CV and both BB at the end, especially when the IJN has better luck and know how to preserve her CVs


I guess I would accept Hiyo for now.

Seriously I have no idea what the IJN setup of SCI is so, this is just some crazy idea...


Suggestion regarding pro-IJN option for SCI scenario:
1. Shortland as an airbase?
2. (As usual) Weaken Henderson Field with less gas/less planes/bombardment reduced it to a single air strip due to IJN victory at Battle of East Solomon
3. More capital ships spearheading for convoy (which is kinda lacking in how the AI tries to clear my blockade)


As for Allied, shall we add Saratoga?

Have will already add the Wasp as an option for Santa Cruz in the 1.6 version 
You get the CV Wasp, BB North Carolina, DD O'Brien

Other ideas:


Easter Solomons:
- the US has not invaded Guadalcanal on time. The scenario starts with the airfield in the hands of the Japanese  and active. The US player must invade it. Of course the painful naval battle fo Savo island has not yet occurred
- the Japanese had managed at least to turn back on time to save the Hiryu from the disaster at Midway. She is available for this scenario
- may be more fuel and planes at Guadalcanal


Guadalcanal
- the Japanese starts with an active airfield at Munda, new Georgia


Santa Cruz:
- why not adding the Shortlands but I am not sure this will change much
- may be something related to a strong land offensive against Henderson Field and artillery guns pointing at the airfield. Hence less planes and fuel at available for the naval battle

So, in the first "Easter" Solomons idea, the Japanese would have had time to FINISH the airfield? It would be operational?

Yes. So this a big what-if

Eastern Solomons:

Japanese held Tulagi? (to be precise) This should be interesting

Hiryu -- I think it is really for those who are looking for even more challenge...

More airfield for Japanese

My main problem with AI is she does not use her air power to cover her fellow sailors strong enough and the latter has to op for operations at night, which is a real shame. I dunno if more, closer airbase helps.

I always feel the planes at Henderson air field in the Santa Cruz scenario is rather of the right mix (before the Japanese air strikes to level them out in Day 1, i.e.)  I have no problem lowering them further.
