To strengthen the conception of your character: Your statement about "luck is necessary for her survival" would be more agreeable if your 7-year-old Alice had the skills and stats of a kid. But, most of her skills and stats are at the level of a Navy Seal.

It is not that she can't have such levels of skill or stats being a kid, the genre could allow it.

However, stretching her luck to 48 lucky breaks an in-game day (by taking the highest of possible multipliers) under the assumption she wouldn’t make it otherwise, does not make much sense; her skills and stats (akin to a Navy Seal’s) offset the argument, especially when the 62 CP players are expected to survive while she has 4 times the budget.

You could say so, but remember that using in-game time or managing time as a whole was not the problem with luck; the problem was the advantage did not have a clear in-game time value and that it was very discretional. The uncertain usage of the advantage called for a cosmic modifier.

After the changes you made, the advantage is clear.
