Jira calculated field based on another calculated field

Hi, I have a Jira custom field setup that includes several scripted fields with pieces of common logic. So, field 1 returns some number based on issue fields, field 2 returns some more info based on number in field 1 etc As you might guess, i'm not fond of copy-pasting scripting code from one script to the other, but all my attempts to use getFieldValue to get the current value of another SCRIPTED field returned NULL/empty values. Am i missing anything?

(UPDATED)

Field1 (scripted field)returns constants depending on issue fields, type etc (simplified version here):
return 5

Field 2 (scripted field) looks like:
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
def custField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Field 1")
if (custField)
return issue.getCustomFieldValue(custField) // TODO: some transform
else
return null

--

this always produced null / empty for Field 2
