This paper proposes a new approach to improve domain independent heuristic state space search planners for classical planning by tuning the search heuristics using macro actions of length two extracted from sample plans. This idea is implemented in the planner AltAlt and the new planner Macro-AltAlt is tested on the domains introduced for the learning track of the International Planning Competition (IPC-2008). The performance of Macro-AltAlt measured by the length of the plan found and the number of states explored to find the plan is compared with that of AltAlt.
