Jet Can Mining

Does the tiny miner plus have a jet mining option? I mine a low key system where no one usually disrupts me, I have the classic but don't see the option.

Yes, you can find the Jettison options in the "Docking and Unloading Ore" drop-down list on the main TinyMiner window. You can choose between "Jettison ore in belt and continue mining" or "Jettison after warping to a safe spot". If you don't run into the so called "can flippers" in your system then the first option is the most efficient. Hope this helps.

Jettison cans have a very small capacity so it wouldn't make sense to use the same can not to mention that it wouldn't be always within range for unloading if your ship keeps moving. So TinyMiner will jettison a new can at the end of each mining run!

Would be lovely if there's an option whether to dump in to the same container or launch new jettison. The reason behind this is I usually running 2 account, one mining and one ratting. The ratting one usually do the hauling, while I got the mining one filling up an enormous freight container which able to hold 250 m3 items in it.

And what if the ship mines more ore in 3 minutes than the hangar holds? You can only jet every 3 minutes. Thats why I couldn't use that option (not that I wanted to, just saying..)

You need to slow it down. There isn't anything that can be done about it. This is a potential problem for Hulks and Coveters. They mine so fast and have small hulls. You just need to time it out that each run will last longer then 3 minutes.

Oh, and if you want drop a MTU on the belt and have it drag all containers into one place for.
