Problem

A texture appears randomly colored and badly pixelated in the game.

Causes and Solutions

Cause 1 - Missing Mipmaps

This can be a result of a texture lacking associated mipmaps, which allows it to be viewed at lower resolution with minimized degradation in quality.

Solution #1: Change Texture Size to 'Large' in Video setting (via the ESC menu).

Solution #2: Notify the modder and ask him or her to re-save the file with mipmaps, or open the file in an image/photo editor (i.e., GIMP or Paint.NET) and re-save the file with the generate mipmaps option checked.
