What is Parachute Mod
Parachute Mod adds parachutes to your world. With the parachute, you can jump from high places and control your decent. Now base jumping in Minecraft is possible! You can steer the parachute just much like you do with the boat. It’s quite fun to do it and will only take a few jumps to learn to skydive. Pressing the ‘W’ key will give you forward motion that can take you pretty far. Deploy the parachute by right-clicking on the parachute item after you jump. Just above the ground your parachute will ‘drop’ giving you a soft and safe landing. This auto-dismount feature is also a configurable option. Disable auto-disamount to dismount with the left shift. The auto-dismount does not activate over leaves (trees), you can get hung up in the trees!
Use the space bar key to add ‘thermal lift’ and you will rise up. This can be disabled in the config. You can set the height limit of the parachute. You really can’t do much above 256 meters anyway, so the default altitude limit is 256 meters. You can change this to suit your needs including disabling it altogether by using a limit of zero. The parachute texture is the wool texture from the current resource pack. You can choose a single texture color or use a random one. There are also some custom textures. A ‘fallDistance’ option allows you to set how far you fall before the parachute auto deploys using the AAD item, default is 5. All of the options are explained in the config GUI tooltips.
