Descend tall mountains and structures in style or even go base jumping with the Minecraft parachute mod! The first step is to craft a parachute with wool, string and leather.
You can use different colour wool to change the colour of the parachute, or even use dye to change the colour of an existing white parachute.
To open the parachute jump off the edge while holding the parachute and right click. You can move about with the WASD keys.
This mod also includes a paraglider, which works the same way, except you can press the space bar to rise up and fly even further.
