I just started a career mode in KSP and the simplest setup fails to work. I have a RT-10 Solid Fuel booster with an Mk1 command pod on top and an Mk16 parachute at the tip. Whenever I deploy the parachute, I do hear the deployment sound but nothing happens, the parachute doesn't open and I crash into the ground.
It makes the game quite hard to play. Does anyone know if I'm doing something wrong or if this is a bug?
This rocket works perfectly. I can launch it and when it starts to descent I activate the parachute. The rocket slows and lands without any damage.
This rocket does not. When I deploy the parachute as soon as the descent starts, I hear the deployment sound but nothing actually happens. If I wait for the rocket to be lower, the speed will be too high and the parachute will break. How can I get this rocket on the ground in one piece, considering the small amount of parts available?
