Parachute Mod for Minecraft 1.12.2/1.11.2

Parachute Mod 1.12.2/1.11.2 is an awesome mod that not only makes base jumping possible in Minecraft but also enables players to jump from high places and control their decent.

The parachute with pretty much steers is just like the boat. Only difference is that it is not as easy to tell where the front of the chute is.  The front of the parachute can be found by looking up or from third-person view. The parachute cords are more red on the right side of the parachute. It’s fun because it only takes a few jumps to learn to skydive.

Besides, pressing the ‘W’ key will give you forward motion that can take you pretty far. The parachute will automatically deploy by right-clicking after you jump. You should make sure the parachute is selected in your inventory first. Just above the ground, your parachute will ‘drop’ giving you a soft and safe landing. You also watch out for overhanging cliffs and cliff walls. The parachute may ‘drop’ if you get too close. Finally, you can use the ‘C’ key to add ‘thermal lift’ and you will rise up, and use the ‘X’ key for faster decents.

As you can see this is a high performance ‘square’ type of parachute. This is Eld’s ArtPack texture pack.


This one shows the parachute with a 32×32 Glimmar’s SteamPunk texture pack.



Crafting Recipes:

Crafting a parachute is easy with 3 wool blocks, 2 silks, and 1 leather. You can see the crafting recipe screenshot below. The leather pack texture is made by TQuin. There are more in the mod jar.


There is a config file in the config directory in your Minecraft folder. You can set the height limit of the parachute. You really cannot do much above 256 meters anyway. The default altitude is 225 meters. That should be high enough to get you over anything. You can change this to suit your needs including disabling it altogether by using a limit of zero. You can set your parachute color as well. The parachute color has a random setting causing the chute to change color with every opening. There is also an option to disable the thermals. Another option ‘autoDeploy’ will automatically deploy the parachute when you fall. A fall Distance option allows you to set how far you fall before the parachute auto deploys. All this is explained in the config file.

You can use shears to cut the parachute away. This only works in the world space below 256 meters. You will plummet to your death if you do not redeploy the parachute, but if that is what you want.

  • Go to %appdata%.
  • Go to .minecraft/mods folder.
  • Drag and drop the downloaded jar (zip) file into it.
