Default Modular abilities & GCA

As I understand it, up ti 30% of a modular ability's costmodifiers can be applied to abilities being "purchased" for use with it...

How do I represent that with GCA?
Is there a variable modifier that covers such a thing?
If not, how would you code that kind of mod for GCA so I can plot out the abilities for my character?

I'm sorry, but right now I haven't got the foggiest idea how Modular Abilities works, in GURPS or GCA.

I really hope someone else can drop in and provide some help.

I'm not aware of that rule. AFAIK you can apply some modifiers to the Modular Ability itself; you can apply any appropriate modifiers to the ability you're building for the modular slot, and you don't normally get to double-dip them (that is, if your Modular Ability is Magical, -10% then you can't put Magical on the ability in the slot, because you already gain all the benefits and weaknesses through the Modular Ability).

I think that's probably what I meant. I didn't have the books handy at the time to make sire I had accurate info. Sorry. I'll revisit this after I've made sure I have the right info.
