Icarus, or simply Mecha, is the silent protagonist of Dyson Sphere Program. Icarus has the Mecha Core which supplies it with power required to perform various activities. The Core has Fuel Chamber that burns Fuels, converting them into power, and is also able to generate power passively, but at a small rate.
- Manual research
- Construction drones
- Warp Drive
|Ability||Power consumtion rate||Notes|
|Moving (Walking and Hovering)||100 kW per m/s||Total power consumption ranges between 600 kW .. 1.6 MW depending on the level of Mechanical Frame upgrade.
Hovering also activates Thruster required for staying in the air.
|Replicator||240 kW||Consumption is the same regardless of replication speed.|
|Manual research||360 kW|
|Gathering||640 kW||Consumption is the same both for veins and vegetation/rocks. Gathering from Gas Giants does not consume power.|
|Drones||60kW per m/s||Drones are powered remotely and spend energy during the flight.
Consumption is 360 kW / drone baseline and 1.08 MW / drone for Drone Engine level 5.
|Thruster||Hovering||~1.2 MW||When moving by Hovering, also consumes energy according to the current Moving speed|
|Accelerating when Sailing in Space||up to 91.3 MW|
|Traveling||3.2 MW per AU/s||= 80 W per m/s = 192MW per ly/s (far less energy per metre per second than Walking).
38.4 MW for the basic warp speed, increased by 9.6 MW per each additional level of the Drive Engine upgrade.
