What are "efficient times" for Ice mining with a Mack by your definition?
I better question would have been how do I figure reset times for the lasers? I think I figures it out. The cycle times for the Ice harvesters 2 show as 351.56 under Attributes . I set my reset time at 357 and set up for 3 cycles before docking. 4 cubes per cycle and a 12k plus cargo hold.
You only need ONE cycle and no laser resets when mining ICE... So 351.56 times 3 is 1054.68 seconds to fill up your Mack. You could even shave off 10-15 seconds from that if you check the "Don't stop the lasers after the last mining cycle" in TinyMiner's advanced options. But the absolute best method when it comes to ICE mining is the Speedy Ice Mining trick. Please check it out. It will considerably boost your efficiency!
