Description

Chutes are displaying "cannot deploy while stowed" message after using an action group to deploy fairing and other actions.
Reference Moho 1B-A1 craft.

Load craft
Go to launchpad
ABORT!!!
Wait 'til burnout, hit 0
Capsule drops away
Hit space for chutes, "cannot deploy" message
Unhappy Kerbals

Expected behavior: Once capsule is free and separate from fairing, cutes should deploy as normal.

Use key 9 to deploy fairing separately after burnout, then 0, chutes will deploy properly.

However, behavior was NOT noticed on simplified craft, reference "Chute test.craft." As before, load>launch>ABORT!!!>burnout, hit 0>chutes deploy normally.

This could possibly be a duplicate of #21915 so maybe the workarounds described there will be useful here, until it is fixed.

#4 Updated by k-ohara5a5a@oco.net 11 days ago

  • Subject changed from Chutes not deploying after deploying fairing via action group. to Chutes not deploying after exiting undeployed fairing

The title disagreed with the description; if you deploy the fairing (AG9) then the chutes do deploy.

'Moho 1B-A1 craft' has the fairing deployment (AG9) separate from decouplers (AG0) that release the pod from the fairing.
'Chute test' has faring deployment and decouplers both in the same action group (AG0) so it works in the same way as 'Moho' does when you hit AG9 and then AG0.

The behavior is consistent; if you don't open that fairing KSP won't let you deploy the chutes.
This is bug #21915, but the workarounds there don't work on the Moho craft.
