I'm trying to figure out the formula for how cargo splits when a fleet splits. At a simple level, it's:
$cargoFleetA * ($cargoCapacityFleetA / ($cargoCapacityFleetA + $cargoCapacityFleetB)
$cargoFleetB * ($cargoCapacityFleetB / ($cargoCapacityFleetA + $cargoCapacityFleetB)

Which of course almost always leaves you with a fraction. Yet simply rounding the result doesn't provide the correct answer in all cases; there's variance +/- 1

Example:
I have a fleet, that starts out with 58800+7000 cargo space (the two resulting fleets combined cargo) before the split, and 515,180,270,252 cargo.

Simply applying the above formula after a split should give:
55,19,29,27 cargo
460,161,241,223 cargo

where Stars! reports:
55,20,28,26
460,160,232,224

So it's not simple rounding. I can get close to the right formula, but can't quite get there. Split all also spreads out results across fleets somehow. Anyone ever figured this out?
