Better Dyson Sphere V2

Ever felt that a red dwarf generating same amount of energy in dyson sphere as a blue giant is crazy?

My mod solves the issue by having a type of dyson spheres for each star class.

The power output is shown below:
Class power
B 8*original dyson sphere
A 6*original dyson sphere
F 5*original dyson sphere
G 4*original dyson sphere
K 3*original dyson sphere
M 2*original dyson sphere

Currently they all come with the same cost and time to build.

Known Issue:
The dyson sphere only appears in the centre of system after built. This is ok for nomal systems but looks weird in moded systems with multiple stars, af there would be an empty dyson sphere in the middle.

The files changed are:

Updated to V2
Now the mod no longer need a new save, old dyson spheres will still have the old amount of output.
Only one option will appear when building a new dyson sphere.
Other empires will correctly recieve notifications of your dyson sphere.

Future plans:
Adjust power output to be more realistic and balanced.
Add -90% energy modifier to habitas in dyson sphere systems, or simply prevent them from being in same system.
Make this mod compatible with other mods, like those adding O class stars.
And more features on the way.

Feel free to give me ideas and advices.

Thanks and Enjoy.

Is this compatable with Utopia expanded? Just curious myself, because I always thought that dyson spheres had a slightly to small output.

@GD, I've looked into the possibility of modifiers, but it seems that megastructure is different from planets and ships, and it is not possible to add modifiers to megastructures. Currently we took a different approach to avoid adding to many items to the list, by automatically removing built (vanilla) Dyson Sphere Sites and spawning a new Dyson Sphere Sites corresponding to the star class.

I really like the idea and it makes absolute sense. But i'm not a friend of multiple assets just with slight changes to stats. Question is it possible to create 6 buffs with different energy (200% to 800%) instead of 6 dyson sphere versions? You know, like a planet buff for more minerals or energy (stormy weather or what was it called) and add it after construction somehow depending on the Suns Class.

I was just thinking of this the other day, and I was building all mine around red dwarfs for roll play perpouses, I mean building around red dwarfs are one thing, but building around a blue giant is pushing my suspension of dissbeleif.
