Ok so we know your cycle time will be reduced by 22.5%, but how many extra cycles
does that give ? Again, the math to the rescue:
500 sec * 1.25 * 0.75 * 0.75 * 0.95^2 * 0.775 = 245.90 sec

Roughly this means almost 15 cycles per hour, which is 4 extra cycles. Here’s our edited

table from section 9:

Ship (affected by the Ice Harvesting link)

Ice units/hour Cycle (in sec)

Cycles/hour

Mackinaw

60

245.90

14.64/15

Covetor

39

276.09

13.03/13

And our original table from section 9, for comparison’s sake:

Ship (not affected by the Ice Harvesting link)

Ice units/hour Cycle (in sec)

Cycles/hour

Mackinaw

44

317.28

11.34/11

Covetor

30

356.25

10.11/10

As you see the Mackinaw will roughly mine 16 extra ice units per hour. Hence we can all

agree it’s an important difference, which becomes even more important when a whole

group of Mackinaw attach an ice belt !

And now on to the good stuff…
