Im wondering if its more profitable to mine in a moa then a venture for alphas
currently in my venture i mine 187m3 / min with 2x laser II, Mining Laser Upgrade II and all the skills a alpha can have.
so for venture is: 187 x 2 turrets = 374m3/min
with a moa however
5x Miner II
2x Mining Laser II
1x Co Processor II
3x Medium Processor Overclock Rig
the simulator gives me 86m3 / min per turret
so 5x 86m3/min = 430 m3
Total it cost 20 mill to build.
Let say it takes 11 ticks to fill up a venture.
11 x 374m3/min = 4114 m3
11x 430 = 4730 m3
So you would be 15% faster mining Ore in a Moa
Is this viable?
You would have to mine with a MTU and come back and collect your ore. ]
Which holds 27000 m3,
A venture holds only 5000m3,
so a 27000/5000 = 5.7 ratio,
Ammoritzed cost of travel the MOA is cheaper. you need to
come back with hauler
go station, deliver ore
come back with Moa
So you would be 30% (5.7 - 4 = 1.7) faster delivering Ore in a Moa
