Hi! I was wondering, if I'm receiving locality pay (DC area), And then move to an overseas post with a hardship differential, will my salary entail my last domestic post pay plus the additional hardship differential or will my domestic locality percentage (DC=24%) be dropped and the post hardship differential percentage will kick in?

Washington DC locality pay only applies to Washington, D.C. Overseas your salary will be adjusted by whatever hardship/danger/COLA/etc differential specific to that post as well as the approximately 16% for Overseas Comparability Pay, intended to put Foreign Service employee's pay on par with that of a Civil Servant serving overseas.

How is the calculation if there is a cost of living percentage and hardship percentage?

Post allowance (COLA) is a percentage of 'disposable income', based on rank and family size.
Post differential (hardship) pay is a percentage of base pay.

Look at the most recent payscales...compare the base pay of DC and of overseas. Your post differential is a percentage of that base pay (overseas chart).
