I'm a brand-new KSP player, and I have been beating my head against the problem of the MK16 parachute always getting 'destroyed by aerodynamic forces' on the way down, no matter what I did, just like many other newbies on this forum. I have been doing the simplest possible configuration in the 'Contract's track - a command module, a 'Flea' solid-rocket booster, and a MK16 parachute. However, I saw a post talking about 'monopropellant' on the command module, and reduced that to zero - that didn't help either, but it got me thinking, and I looked at the options for the 'Flea' solid booster. Turns out that although you can't throttle a 'Flea' booster, you CAN reduce the starting fuel amount and the thrust available. So, I reduced them both to about 1/2 scale, and now the rocket assembly tops out MUCH lower, and the parachute now works every time - YAY!! https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Cz6jzboQKj0MRzksfV7pvL5-smfzZ45J/view?usp=sharing I'm now experimenting with higher fuel loads to see if I can get the parachute to survive even with a full fuel load. Woo Hoo! Frank
I'm trying to complete the first tutorial level, but I am being told to select the MK16 parachute, but it is not there. I cannot find it in the utility tab, where it is telling me to click on it from, and will not let me progress any further with the level. Anybody know what's going on?
