A lifter is a mechanoid added by the Biotech DLC.

Summary

As mechanoids, every lifter is immune to fire, Flame and Heat damage, toxic buildup, and temperature extremes, despite having Comfortable Temperatures defined. They do not need to eat, rest, and have no mood. They will be stunned by EMP attacks for a time proportional to the EMP damage inflicted and will "adapt" and rendered immune to further EMP strikes for 2,200 ticks (36.67 secs).

Work

Lifters are light mechanoids. Mechs count as a partial pawn in terms of raid points, and still contribute towards wealth.

They are created from a standard mech gestator with Steel 50 Steel, Basic subcore 1 Basic subcore, taking up 1 bandwidth from a mechanitor. They take 1800 ticks to initally craft, and then it must gestate for 1 cycle. Mechanoids can be fully repaired at the cost of power and nothing else. A dead lifter can be resurected for 25 steel and 1 gestation cycle so long as the corpse is extant.

Mechs under player control require power: lifters use 10% of their power per day while active. If set to dormant self-charging, they instead recharge for 1% power / day, without pollution. They recharge in a mech recharger (200W), for 50% power/day, creating 5 wastepacks whenever the recharger's waste is filled up.

Lifters will do all tasks under the Haul tab. Other than bringing items to other places, Lifters can also re-arm turrets, reinstall buildings, and more. Lifters move at 2.8 cells/s, which is roughly 61% as fast of a baseline human.

Analysis

Lifters have the unique benefits of being a mechanoid - they aren't human, and will constantly haul until they run out of power. While lifters move slower than colonists or animals, they spend the entirety of their time hauling. At minimum, mechs will work for 83% of the time (5 days of work, 1 day recharge, minus travel time), and they can be turned off when not required. Their lack of mood is useful for picking up far away items and cremating human corpses. Finally, they are cheap to produce and amass.

Comparison to dryads

Compared to the Carrier dryadContent added by the Ideology DLC, lifters move faster and are created faster. Carriers need to sleep, so lifters can work for longer before needing to charge. Carriers require active pruning, while lifters are autonomous from their master. However, lifters require Electricity and a mechanitor to function, and create pollution. Meanwhile, carriers are available from the neolithic era.
