We were more worried about people taking Ultima Cores and putting them in “Major” customs, then complaining that it didn’t work. If we allow Ultima Cores (we’re still debating it), it should be fine if you use Ultima.
That’s the way we’d prefer to use Ultimas, but experimentation is key. We’re getting more and more evidence that running Ultimas like a major title can be quite rewarding.
The build you created is solid and would work well. Good job.
Like 'em both. Keep the good builds coming, ya’ll.
Theoretically, yes. Physical shifting is still one of those “very experimental” type modules. Some people see incredible results, others see nothing. Time is the one constant – some people have to run them longer than others.
Now it’s time for my blunt thoughts. When I did Stark Ultima, I didn’t notice much. Personally, if I did put cores in Ultima, I would put a core in an Ultima as a booster … that is, I would already be running the core in a Q, Terminus, or Terminus Squared subliminal, and consider the same core in Ultima format as a booster.
Further, if I did a core in Ultima, I would put in modules to re-inforce that core. So if the core was about healing, then I would only put in healing modules in to the Ultima with that one core, and NOT another core. I would only do ONE core per Ultima.
So let’s go back to your example. Let’s suppose I wanted to put Sex and Seduction along with Sex Mastery into an Ultima. First, I would see if I was putting 2 cores into a Ultima. So I check the Q store. Oops! Both are listed as cores.
So then I would ask myself if I wanted to enter in to experimental territory by putting 2 cores into an Ultima. Let’s suppose I wanted to take that risk. I would make sure my custom subliminal had already Sex and Seduction with Sex Mastery in it already. If so, then I would design this Ultima:
Sex and Seduction
put a sexual one here
put another sexual one here
put yet another sexual one here
put still another sexual one here
So I would max it out at 6. For my own preferences, if I was going to do Sex Mastery along with Sex and Seduction, I would do:
Sex and Seduction
Long range seduction
However, let’s suppose I didn’t want to put 2 cores, I would choose 1 core and put in 5 other non-core sexual modules. I also might decide to do 2 different Ultimas. One with Sex Mastery and 5 non-core sexual modules, and another with Sex and Seduction with 5 non-core sexual modules. Again, I would ensure that the cores were already in my custom subliminals.
We know Ultima works. Still, I would encourage thought, planning, and caution. If you are bold enough to experiment, worst thing is your results may not be what you hoped. The advantage is that if it works, you’ll be at the cutting edge of advancements.
Me personally, I’m only using non-core modules in Ultima unless @SaintSovereign or @Fire has told me something to indicate otherwise.
@Joa93 I have and it would probably just add to the ability to be as relaxed as possible and not be reactive. It’s strange because I’m rapidly learning to feel that way running Limit Destroyer Ultima and Elixir. It feels both weird and cool not to feel some weird guilt based passive aggressive obligation to respond to anything and everything. The other one I was considering adding was Iron Frame. Really cement it all. It would definitely make my life a whole lot easier. That and I want to be able to respond to things without getting emotional. It makes things unnecessary difficult at times. It might not hurt to add Steadfast for that reason
I still say perhaps check out Loin IV and Sanguine. I also think Iron Frame might be another good option. Remember that 6 is your maximum for an Ultima. Although 3 is the minimum… remember the true minimum is zero because you don’t have to get anything…
