    Really, I was just curious because you gave a specific algo there which looked very wrong to me (and double-checking the official algo, yeah -- it is wrong).

    What are you using these calcs for? If it's nothing server-y (or you're only ever using it for that one amount) then there's no real problem, but it's definitely not accurate.
    Have a look at the actual values it produces:
    Code:
    Using base NP amount: 50
    1 - 50 (official) vs 50 (yours)
    2 - 28.5 (official) vs 28 (yours)
    3 - 21.333333 (official) vs 20.666667 (yours)
    4 - 17.75 (official) vs 17 (yours)
    5 - 15.6 (official) vs 14.8 (yours)
    6 - 14.166667 (official) vs 13.333333 (yours)
    7 - 13.142857 (official) vs 12.285714 (yours)
    8 - 12.375 (official) vs 11.5 (yours)
    So, the different algo you're talking about is just :

    (50 + [7 * (party_member_count - 1)]) / party_member_count

    You could just say it's not 6, it's 7 I always thought it rounds the number up for some reason because 6 did the job and I didn't think to add 7.

    Surprisingly, this works out precisely for 50:
    Code:
    Using base NP amount: 50
    1 - 50 (50) (official) vs 50 (50) (yours)
    2 - 28 (28.5) (official) vs 28 (28.5) (yours)
    3 - 21 (21.333333) (official) vs 21 (21.333333) (yours)
    4 - 17 (17.75) (official) vs 17 (17.75) (yours)
    5 - 15 (15.6) (official) vs 15 (15.6) (yours)
    6 - 14 (14.166667) (official) vs 14 (14.166667) (yours)
    7 - 13 (13.142857) (official) vs 13 (13.142857) (yours)
    8 - 12 (12.375) (official) vs 12 (12.375) (yours)
    However, it still breaks on everything else:
    Code:
    Using base NP amount: 25
    1 - 25 (25) (official) vs 25 (25) (yours)
    2 - 14 (14.25) (official) vs 16 (16) (yours)
    3 - 10 (10.666667) (official) vs 13 (13) (yours)
    4 - 8 (8.875) (official) vs 11 (11.5) (yours)
    5 - 7 (7.8) (official) vs 10 (10.6) (yours)
    6 - 7 (7.083333) (official) vs 10 (10) (yours)
    7 - 6 (6.571429) (official) vs 9 (9.571429) (yours)
    8 - 6 (6.1875) (official) vs 9 (9.25) (yours)
    
    Using base NP amount: 64
    1 - 64 (64) (official) vs 64 (64) (yours)
    2 - 36 (36.48) (official) vs 35 (35.5) (yours)
    3 - 27 (27.306667) (official) vs 26 (26) (yours)
    4 - 22 (22.72) (official) vs 21 (21.25) (yours)
    5 - 19 (19.968) (official) vs 18 (18.4) (yours)
    6 - 18 (18.133333) (official) vs 16 (16.5) (yours)
    7 - 16 (16.822857) (official) vs 15 (15.142857) (yours)
    8 - 15 (15.84) (official) vs 14 (14.125) (yours)
    You're (sort of) on the right track, but there's a little more to it than that.
