I'm not sure why, but ever since the mk1 command pod overhaul the little old mk16 parachute has just seemed a little out of place, with it's low res textures and everything.

I do understand that many people may disagree with me however as it is to my knowledge the only part who's texture and mesh have not changed since the first public release of the game, and might be considered nostalgic to some players. Maybe it would be a good idea for squad to keep the part in as an easter egg or something similar.

I think it should be revamped, yes. I think all the inline chutes could use a pass. The radial ones are fine but I don't think they'd suffer from one.

It could really do with a more conical shape, looks so silly as-is. At any rate, it's always looked rather bad texturewise too and could do with improvement.

Nah. There's nothing wrong with it as-is... and it's nice to have something left over from the earliest days of the game.

Since @SQUAD redid the capsules the parachutes really stick out as being old textures. Those and the Heat Shield shrouds are some of my least fav parts because you use them on so many craft.
