The Parachutes in Arma are awesome and realistic, but to be honest they're a pain, and they need to be used in very specific circumstances to be used, I was sick of it and admired games like Battlefield Bad Company 2, Battlefield 3, Battlefield 4, and recently the newest Modern Warfare for their parachute mechanics, and I saught to re-create them in Arma and I even went a step further and added Parachute Cutting and Redeploying. Granted these things aren't realistic, but they sure are fun.
I did this mod ages ago for a mission I created called "Slay's Ravage": https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1982286715
No need to equip a chute, just press Space Bar while falling, then enjoy the smooth sailing.
Player won't die from impact if the chutes open.
Player can cut the chute and re-equip one almost instantly.
Players backpack is added back when they land.
To install Slay's Expedited Parachute System you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.
You must bind Custom User Action 15 to open the parachute now!
I suggest unbinding all buttons using the Space Bar, and use a mod like Enhanced Movement, or another mod which adds a jump mechanic, and binding said jump mechanic to the Space Bar to drastically improve the feel of Arma 3.

A option to rebind from space bar later.
