When building a custom, focus on which modules you want to include, and not whether a core contains a certain module. We cannot stress this enough. The submodules within a Q Core has been rescripted to support the goals of the Q Core, and not necessarily your entire custom. Of course, some effects will bleed through into the entire custom, but not including a particular module because it’s a submodule within a Q Core may lead to subpar results. Here’s why:
For illustrative purposes, let’s look at Mind’s Eye Q Core — the core for a title that helps with boosting your visualization abilities. Mind’s Eye Q Core contains significant scripting from Ascension, one of our alpha titles. That Ascension scripting, however, has been completely rewritten to enhance your confidence in your ability to visualize. This version of Ascension does not perform the same way the Major Title or Q Core version does, as its been re-scripted to support the goals of THAT PARTICULAR CORE — in this case, Mind’s Eye Q Core.
Yes — some of that Ascension scripting could improve overall confidence (like you’d expect the Major Title or Q Core to do), but again — it’s going to FIRST support the goals of Mind’s Eye. Thus, if you want Ascension in your custom, you should include the Ascension Core, regardless of how many times it shows up as a submodule in the cores you’ve chosen.
