For those who are wondering, this is a separate download because other mods (like this
one for example) use it as well.
Controls: For the ejection module, use the abort action group. For the parachute box, get near on EVA and use the context menu. To deploy parachutes, either use the context menu or press Jump and Use (Space+F unless you remapped the keys).
EVA Parachutes (1.2)

| Requires the Plugin
---Research Survivability (for Parachute Box) and Supersonic Flight (for Ejection Module)!---
Controls (all keys given assume that you did not remap any keys in the options menu or the config file, if you did:
-The ejection module activates with the abort action group (backspace or mouseover the altimeter, then the red button to the left), but you can of course put it into any other action group, too
-To get a chute from the parachute box, get within 1m of it and then use the context (right-click) menu
-To deploy chutes, either use the Kerbal's context menu or press Jump and Use (Space+F). Jump+Use has the advantage of opening chutes on all Kerbals in range (good for mass ejects), but you may have to hold it down for a short time or it won't work (not sure why)
There's now a little plugin that adds parachutes to any Kerbal without requiring parachute boxes -> *click me* (Doesn't replace anything, so you can just add/remove it whenever you want... but of course you have to install this mod first Also this doesn't use the R&D system and will give you parachutes from the very beginning.

NAQ/OAQ (Never Asked Questions / Once Asked Questions)
Q | What's wrong with that first sentence and the part descriptions?
A | Nothing really.
Q | Why do I have to download two files to use this mod?
A | The plugin is required for other mods as well, so people might have to download only that thing. I don't really know why it's so hard to download 2 files anyway.
Q | When I try to deploy the parachute, nothing happens and the Kerbal falls to death!
A | 2 possible reasons:
1) You are missing GameData\VNG\parachute\model.mu. That file is required for the parachute to open, you can download it with the parachute mod.
2) You have another copy of VanguardTechnologies.dll in your GameData or Plugins folder and that one's outdated.
Q | I can't even eject / get a chute from a box!
A | You're probably missing VanguardTechnologies.dll, scroll up to the plugin section of this post. Fel's EVAParachutes.dll alone doesn't work!
