    [1.0.5]Wenkel Corporation - RealChute Parachute Systems v1.3.2.4 | 10/11/15

    Wenkel Corporation presents

    RealChute is a complete rework of the stock parachute module to fix a few of it's inconveniences and get more realistic results out of parachutes!

    Please note that this mod will not work on windows 64bit builds.

    Issues that do not follow the
    bug reporting format will be ignored

    v1.2 release notes, please read before installing.

    v1.0 release notes
    Explanation of some editor window fields

    • Gradual deployment: Chutes gradually deploy, increasing realism and decreasing deployment shock.
    • New Deployment Conditions: Chutes deploy in conditions ranging from Eve's crushing clouds to Duna's silken veil. Parachutes deploy either according to atmospheric density or altitude and will not deploy when not intended to; e.g. in space or on the pad. Autocuts can be set for a certain altitude per chute to cut some chutes while other deploy!
    • Parachutes on Ground: Parachutes will not autocut upon nearly stopping mid-air or touching the ground, enabling drag chutes for planes!
    • Parachutes Return to Staging: Parachutes can be restaged again and again without restrictions!
    • Drag Chute: Drag chutes deploy at low altitude to slow landing airplanes.
    • Full Customization: Parachutes' values can be edited, and modders can add the plugin to their packs.
    • Combo Chute: Deploys a drogue and next a main chute.
    • Custom parts: sumghai gave this pack its own parts!
    • Vessel Hangs from Chute: Even nose chutes!
    • Editor window: Edit parachutes from the editor for any shape, size, or characteristics!
    • Presets: Quickly edit parachutes by saving configurations into presets and loading them quickly later!

    Thanks to Duxwing for rewriting this part

    -Added the ability to define a second material for the second parachute
    -Added the ability to force the parachutes partially in one direction, thus eliminating clipping chutes on dual parts!
    -The force is now applied on the whole vessel, so no more weird hangings if the part origin is weird

    -Fixed a bug with parachutes facing downwards on reentry
    -Added a random deployment delay for parachutes! They will now take between 0 and 1 second to deploy. This is chose randomly for every parachute
    -Every parachute now has random "movement noise" different from every other parachutes currently active
    -Said random noise will now appear to be much smoother than before

    -Parachutes no create drag from the very area where they originate from. This means a chute on the side will hang realistically without a CoM offset
    -Rescaled all the parachutes to have the real size in game. If you find this too big, tell me on the forum and I'll revise them (note, this is not procedural yet, if you change the part yourself, you need to change the scale)
    -New ability to cut both parachutes if both are deployed.
    -Fixed a bug with the calculator when calculating the diameter of multiple chutes
    -Added a sound on repack, thanks to ymir9 once again
    December 4th 2013
    -Completely removed stock drag dependancy. The parachutes now calculate drag according to real drag equations
    -Given the above, the drag parachutes generate is irrelevant of the mass of the part and now depends of the diameter of the parachute
    -Parachutes are now made of different materials, defined in cfg files
    -Parachute canopies now weight something which depends on which material they are made of and what is it's area density
    -Optimization of the code by about 300 lines as the module is pretty much complete
    -New parts with the pack, thanks to sumghai! You can now select between many different parachutes for the job you want to accomplish
    -It is now possible to arm a parachute to deploy as soon as it can through action group or part GUI
    -Minimal deployment can now be defined by altitude or pressure
    -Added FXGroups to parachute cut and repack, and providing a cut sound with the parachutes, offered by ymir9!
    -A small program made to help calculating parachute diameters is also included with the download!
    -Fixed the bugs related to action groups/part GUI and the deployment of dual parachutes
    November 24th 2013
    -Fixed a bug where single parachutes don't show the right icon colours
    -Fixed the weird glitchiness of the parachute's orientation in some occasions
    -Fixed parachutes not working if not on the current active vessel
    November 23rd 2013
    -Added a compatibility mode for a second parachute on the same part! Can only be used if the parachute has a a
    second set of parachute transform/animation
    -Reworked deployment code from the ground up to allow the above feature
    November 16th 2013
    -Fixed the issue where deploying the parachute below the full deployment height would play the second animations faster
    -Added sounds on both predeployment and deployment
    -Added a deployment timer that will show a countdown on the flight screen
    -Added a clause that the ship must go downards to deploy and that will show status on the flight screen
    -Fixed a few remaining deployment bugs
    -Changed the behaviour of the part GUI to only show when the action is available
    November 13th 2013
    -Hotfix of a few deployment bugs that could cause weird unresponsive parachutes
    -Added a "cutAlt" feature to automatically cut a parachute below a certain altitude.

    -Initial release

    And now finally, if you want to donate a little something to support for all the coffee and the nights I spent on this, you are very welcome, and it would make my day my year.

    FAQ (probably)

    Q: Do the parachutes hold on at 4x physical time warp?
    A: Depending on how fast you are coming down and which chute you are using, yes. Most often they will hold on just fine, but I really can't guarantee they will. However be careful, the chutes fully deployed added to high physical timewarp values can lead to bad stuff, you've been warned.

    Q: Is this FAR compatible?
    A: It should be without problem now, but the graphics might not show the right values concerning drag coefficient.

    Q: Can you make a ModuleManager file for *insert mod here*?
    A: Of course, if you have a request, just drop me a word and I'll see about it.

    Q: I'm trying to add a secondary parachute to a part but it's not working!
    A: It's not working because you can't add a secondary parachute to any part. It needs a second parachute transform, a second set of parachute animations, etc. A modeller needs to make a part that has two parachute to allow it.

    Q: Can you add deployment by pressure?
    A: Done, rejoice people!

    Q: What is your favourite pie flavour?
    A: I love cherry and blueberry pie tbh.

    Special thanks to UbioZur, r4m0n, Sarbian, Cilph, sirkut, taniwha, NathanKell, ferram4, toadicus and the rest of #kspmodders for helping this mod happen

    The cut and repack sounds were graciously given by ymir9, big thanks to him!

    Very special thanks to sumghai for those awesome parts, as well as the logos, icons, and flags!!

    Both the current and proposed features are very promising - I'm tempted to upgrade the chutes in my Service Module pack to make use of your plugin soon

    Much thanks, I was quite annoyed by those pesky parachutes ^^

    As one of the people who helped test these parachutes before the official release, I'm willing to personally vouch for the quality of this add-on. I quite enjoy them myself

    That looks great!

    I know there have been two radial drogues released (recolors of the stock radial) and you might want to talk to their authors. One of them added a ton of new parachute textures, too, and so you should definitely contact her/him.

    Aye, I remember that one. Though I'm already talking to a modeler to give parts for this mod, I'm terrible with whatever is texture/modeling/phgotoshop/gimp

    I would like to request a new feature that automatically cuts the parachute at a specified altitude
