I asked around but this seems some well kept secret.
How do faction standings gains *exactly* work?
I mean, they are usually expressed as percentage, i.e. +0.38% Gallente standing.
What does this 0.38% exactly applies to?
Imagine I currently have Gall standings = 3.
Does the 0.38% mean I'll get to 3 + (0.38% of 3)?
Or is the 0.38% based off an absolute, other scale, ie 3 get from 3 to 3 + 0.38% of 10 (10 being a theoretical max standing)?
Other questions: when I read that doing COSMOS you'll get 0.1% here, then 0.2% there. Does it mean that doing COSMOS at low beginning standings is bad, since that 0.2% will apply to a very small previous standing number?
What standings should I *start* COSMOS with, in order to end right and be able to claim the faction *battleship* BPC?
Basically ATM I want to train an alt up to >= 7 standings ASAP (using cross faction allied agents and whatsnot).
I found out some excellent walkthrough like this:
but it's limited to the first 0.5 standing.
I'd like pointers to something helping me going from my current 2.8 standing up to >= 7 as fast as possible.
I even considered those "angel tags" missions, but should I do them later (because of the 0.3-0.5% standings rise, am I not better waiting to have a big standings already before starting them?) or is it exactly the same?
*Utterly confused* and the more I eve-search the worse it gets.

Standing change is always calculated off the difference to +10 (or -10 if the Standing is decreasing). So 3 + 0,38% would net you: 3 + (10-3)*0,38%= 3 + 7 * 0,38% = 3,0266. The Derived Modifications shown ingame are not following this rule, it's just [absolute standing change]*10. They're still calculated as shown above though.
