How to Remove Parachutes from one or both sides

If you want to remove parachutes for one or both teams, first, find out which soldier model is being used.

Look at your init.con file for your map. Midway down, you'll see lines like this:

game.setTeamSkin 1 IraqSoldier
game.setKit 1 0 Iraq_Sniper
game.setKit 1 1 Iraq_Assault
game.setKit 1 2 Iraq_AT
game.setKit 1 3 Iraq_HeavyAssault
game.setKit 1 4 Iraq_Support
game.setKit 1 5 Iraq_SpecOps

game.setTeamSkin 2 USSoldier
game.setKit 2 0 US_Sniper
game.setKit 2 1 US_Assault
game.setKit 2 2 US_AT
game.setKit 2 3 US_HeavyAssault
game.setKit 2 4 US_Support
game.setKit 2 5 US_SpecOps

Remember the IraqSoldier and USSoldier.

Now, open up the ObjectSpawnTemplates.con under the gametype you wish to remove chutes from.

At the bottom of this file, type:

ObjectTemplate.Active IraqSoldier
ObjectTemplate.setParachuteDrag 3000
ObjectTemplate.setParachuteSpeed 15

ObjectTemplate.Active USSoldier
ObjectTemplate.setParachuteDrag 3000
ObjectTemplate.setParachuteSpeed 15

It doesn't look pretty in game, but it works! I noticed in DCX they use a value of 1000 for ObjectTemplate.setParachuteDrag. Their's looks a little cleaner in game.
