Most missing texture issues are fairly simple to fix once the culprit is found, so lets conglomerate the issue into one thread.  Any new threads about missing textures will be merged into this one.

I've found a weird missing texture issue. I'm getting the nails on crates showing up as purple, yet there are no meshes replacements for that model (meshes/clutter/common/cratesmall01.nif is what I've noticed it on so far), and the textures (textures/gray.dds and textures/default_n.dds) are in the right place, yet they still show up as purple. Any help?

Sounds like you might have DDSOpted the color textures when you shouldn't have. I think they're suppose to be skipped in the DDSOpt process.

Oh, they're supposed to be skipped? I must have missed where it said that. Either way, I got those textures out of my backup, and put them into the game, and it worked again. Thanks for alerting me to that being the issue.

Black textures are usually a result of a bad optimization in DDSopt.

Have you reloaded and looked whether they were still black?

I'm having a specific missing texture on greatswords only (I believe it's the sheaths): no idea where it's from. I only ran the vanilla and HDDLC textures through DDSOpt and nothing else that I've put into my game setup, haven't even gotten around to applying the fixes after optimisation just yet, so I don't know what's causing it. Any help pinning it down would be appreciated, thanks! I'm using all mods under STEP section 2I except Nightingale Prime, not Really HD Mask of Clavicus Vile, and Shield of Ysgramor. Additional weapon mods would be Heavy Armory. I'm also using the aMidianBorn Textures For Immersive Armors and Lore-Friendly Armor Pack. other than those, I can't think of anything else that might result in this particular texture going missing.

The texture for the sheaths of the greatswords comes from Greatsword Sheaths & Scabbards I believe.

Maybe try reinstalling that?

Maybe it's common knowledge, but i noticed that ddsopt sometimes optimize planar textures (uniform color textures) into 1x1 textures. This caused purple textures to replace the optimized planar texture. Resizing these textures at 16x16 size solved the problem.

It is not common knowledge I would say, but it is part of the reason why I (we) always say not to just DDSopt everything! Sometimes stuff like that happens. I find it happens more to skins and armor-weapons mods then landscape ones though.

Hey, I recently installed Skyrim with Neovalens Guide and everything (after a week of testing) seems fine. The only thing annoying is that the inside of my lanterns are pink/purple. I speak of the Wearable Lanterns mod which i have installed with the SMIM compatibilty Patch. Redownload and reinstall of the mod+patch doesnt seem to work, so I wonder where the culprit hides.

If you are sure that it is due to the lanterns mod, then you should be able to find the path of the texture used with Tes5edit without too much of a fuss since the mod is not that massive. Once you have the name of the texture you can find out which to replace or look at more indepth. Also a screenshot would help, since I am a bit confused if you mean the actual lantern or if you mean the glow it produces etc. But regardless if a simple reinstall does not solve it then try to isolate the texture responsible.

I've made some Screenshots. The thing that bugs me is, that in the Inventar, the lantern seems to look right (does it ?) How do I isolate a missing Texture (if that indeed is the problem) ? Is there a good tutorial somewhere ?

Didn't Chesko mention something about one of the lanterns on his description and FAQ pages about one of the lanterns having something wrong with the oil well?
