    Created this blueprint in Creative mode. Works fine. Parachutes deploy and craft slows down to ~4.5m/s

    Pasted this blueprint into any survival game (modded/unmodded/mp/sp/ds) and when the parachutes 'deploy' you see the speed drop to ~40m/s, the chutes don't appear, and the craft behaves as if chutes are kinda dragging it (floats, rocks about etc...). Craft collides with ground, no survivors.

    Yes, they are loaded with canvas.

    To reproduce:

    Paste bp into a survival world,
    enter craft from rear,
    sit in flight seat
    press 9 to turn the craft on
    when you fall to an appropriate height, press 3 to deploy chutes
    grab your ankles and kiss your butt goodbye.

    Tested Ship on Easy Start Mars; was able to replicate above conditions of craft reducing Speed (Very Slowly) as it approached 45m/s. Upon Further investigation, noticed that Inventories for Parachute blocks were not present in my loaded ship but the blocks them selves were located in the "Control Panel". Upon replacing the blocks in question on the ship and withing the timer block function, ship was able to decelerate in atmosphere when the parachute timer was called. Have repeated this fresh copies from the Blueprint Screen on Mars and Alien Plant to confer validity.

    Additionally; while testing, i took a copy of the descending craft when its parachutes where released and pasted beside it; expecting it to fall. It continued to gently float down beside the original but without graphics for its parachutes. This may have been the origin for this bug. Further testing may be required to see if "parachute persistence" extends to the workshop as reliability as this blueprint repeats.

    I just reproduced and reported the issue. :tu:

    I am not sure why it is happening, but if I tried to replace parachutes, it started to work, also copies and blueprints of the edited grid were working. So right now I would try to replace parachutes and it should be eventually fixed.

    Thank you!
