A parachute lets the player fall at a slower velocity (0.3x) and land without taking any fall damage.
To make a parachute, we'll need two main ingredients: 2 Cartridges of Ammonia and 2 Beakers of Caprolactone. Check out the sections below (Ammonia and Caprolactone) on how to make each, and then return here.
Now that you have your main ingredients, process the Ammonia and Caprolactone into Caprolactam via the Chemical Processor, as shown below:
Then, take 3 of the resulting beakers of Caprolactam and turn them into sacks of Polycaprolactam Pellets:
Next, craft the Polycaprolactam Sacks into Bags via a Crafting Table, and extrude the Bags into Fibers of Nylon 6 by using the proper Metal Die (Fibers) in an Extruder.
Now, craft 4 of the Nylon 6 Fibers in an 'X' shape to make a Ripstop Nylon Sheet:
Finally, craft the Ripstop Nylon Sheet with 4 more of the Nylon 6 Fibers to make the parachute:
Congratulations! You're finished! To use the parachute, simply hold it while falling, and you won't take any fall damage! Enjoy!
Ammonia is far simpler to make than Caprolactone. To make the Ammonia you'll need, process Nitrogen and Hydrogen with an Iron III Oxide Catalyst in a Chemical Processor:
Now, proceed to the next section where you'll make the required Caprolactone.
Caprolactone is formed by processing Cyclohexanone and Peracetic Acid in a Chemical Processor. Follow the steps below to obtain each, then return here.
Now, process the 2 Beakers of Cyclohexanone and 2 Beakers of Peracetic Acid:
Now that you've made your Caprolactone, return to the main section here to continue.
To make Cyclohexanone, we'll need
- 2 Beakers of Benzene (obtained through the successive distillation of Crude Oil into BTX, and then BTX into Benzene)
- 6 Cartridges of Hydrogen
- 8 Platinum Catalysts
- 2 Cartridges of Oxygen
- 8 Cobalt Catalysts
To start, process the Benzene and Hydrogen with the Platinum Catalysts in the Chemical Processor to make Cylcohexane:
Then process the resulting Cyclohexane with the Oxygen and Cobalt Catalysts to form Cyclohexanone:
Now, proceed to the next section to make Peracetic Acid.
To make 2 Beakers of Peracetic Acid, we'll need:
- 4 Beakers of Acetylene (process 8 Cartridges of Methane in a Chemical Processor)
- 4 Mercury Catalysts
- 2 Cartridges of Oxygen
First, process the Acetylene with the Mercury Catalysts:
Then, process half (2 Beakers) of the resulting Acetaldehyde with the 2 Cartridges of Oxygen:
Now return to the section above to continue.
