Parachute spread?


Question

Isn't there supposed to be an option in the context menu of radially-mounted parachutes while in the VAB/SPH to set their spread angle?  Even with advanced tweakables enabled, I can't find it.

Posted in this section 'cause I do have a lot of mods installed (list below), but I don't think any of them should block this functionality.

Do you miss that option on every parachute or just a few? This is at least not a stock chute and maybe the mod which implemented this part, uses a different (custom) partmodule for their chutes which just doesn't allow to adjust the spread angle.

Would you mind to upload your ModuleManager.ConfigCache (to dropbox, google drive, whatever)? Should be easy to find  that chute and check the attached partmodules :)

I poked around in there myself, and it looks like one of my mods replaced the stock parachutes with its own nearly-identical versions, but I'm not sure which mod is the culprit.

Thanks :)

Indeed, the "ModuleParachute" got replaced with the " RealChuteFAR" module by FAR (Ferram Aerospace Research Continued) and it doesn't implement this feature, so this is actually nothing which can be fixed, it's just not part of your modded game ;)

Thanks.  Time to go investigate the FAR thread and try to determine why it removes the chute spread function.  :V

[edit]  Looks like it's 'cause FAR's "RealChuteLite" module is literally just a pruned-down version of RealChute, which was built from the ground up only implementing chute-spread for its own added parachute parts.  Since FAR doesn't add those parts, the result is no chute-spread function.
