have you tried finding a mod that replaces those weapon textures/meshes.. when I encounter stuff like that in Oblivion, I usually go around trying to find mods that fix it by replacing the texture or mesh. It could also be a faulty normal map.

I'm trouble shooting atm tried Unique uniques with or without no difference ... the problem is also I don't really know what to look for really tried different thing ... however it's weird because standard those weapons are just plain standard weapons really with a kind of glow. Can somene give me the standard file name (or is it in one big container) If I can somehow re-acquire those files ... I really don't want to re-install skyrim for 2 weapons.

found the ids..

PC Some instances the ceremonial weapons will not appear in their designated spots. ◦ PC Can be solved by typing in the console command player.additem ID 0008adfb 1 for the axe, and player.additem ID 0008adfc 1 for the sword and after getting both items, the buged one this way, type setstage dunVolunruudQST 20.

As far as retexturing goes.. there isn't a mod that changes those two items.. weird. There is a request for one to be made however.

sorry I couldn't be of more help :/

If you want to mess with them, I guess you can try replacing the texture from steel weapons to those by renaming the files to reflect those two weapons, just make sure you make backups and remember what you did. In essense making your own mod (in a sense).

Steel was an example, since I know amidianborn has those textures for steel/iron/etc just need to rename them to reflect those two. much like renaming iron to replace elven so an iron axe texture will appear on elven axe, your not directly making the texture just renaming ids.. :P (of course you will need the corresponding mesh since the shape of the iron axe is different from the shape of the elven axe.

A better way would be to use a similar shaped weapon texture.. (will reduce the need for a compatible mesh) I believe those two are modeled after draugr weapons, so using a draugr texture would probably work.

Example: If I wanted a different appearance to my female armor in Oblivion but wanted the same texture, I would just replace the mesh, not the texture. This could get tricker with weapons since weapons have different shapes (unlike armor which is fitted for the body mod you have installed).

Well I let it be for now ... weird because standard it's just an enchanted ancient sword and axe ... all other ancient sword and axes are fine it's just those two. I never use them anyway I have far better weapons. as for that mod request I keep an eye on it. In the meantime I just dump them in a chest ... lol

I have a similar problem with Steel Glass armour, its invisible

Put it on, only my feet, head and hands show. No idea what caused it...

missing textures show up as purple, the model still exists so you'll see the shape and outline even though its purple, but invisibility suggests the .nif model has disappeared or is corrupted in some way

I know this is an old thread but... Google. I'm missing the diffuse map and normal map for Eduj as well (but oddly not for Okin). For sure it's a mod or mod load order. If I was just missing the diffuse map, Eduj would be purple. Instead, it's a bright white.

data\textures\weapons\nordherosword.dds is right where it should be. The only way I see this happening is if an .esp is telling Skyrim to look for that texture in a custom directory and the textures for that sword are not in that directory.

I have no idea which mod is responsible for this texture coming up missing. I guess it's time to open up TES5Edit and look at every possible mod and individual records.

Edit 1: For Anyone who Googles in search of a solution with a similar issue, I deactivated *all* my plugins and it did not resolve the issue. Therefore, it's not a load order issue for me. Not a mod .esp issue. It's an install issue.

Edit 2: The culprit is a meshes-only .esp-less mod, Better Shaped Weapons. Uninstalling the mod in NMM resolved the issue. The next step will be to reinstall and see if I can come up with some kind of a work-around. (I'm still not entirely sure why the textures in this mod are suddenly not working for Eduj. This mod has worked for me in the past. It only replaces meshes, not textures. Perhaps someone else has more insight as to how this could happen?)

Edit 3: Reinstalled Better Shaped Weapons using the mod's FOMOD installer, selecting custom install. Completely fixed. I don't know what I selected previously when installed, or if I overwrote something by accident by installing another mod, but uninstalling, reinstalling, and the boxes I checked during this install completely resolved the issue.

If anyone else is having a similar issue, I hope this helps you to troubleshoot and isolate the problem.

This problem occurs with Better Shaped Weapons if "Runed Nord Hero Swords" is selected rather than "Nord Hero Swords" and the prerequisite mod Runed Nord Hero Weapons is not installed.

^^ little late to to the party but makes sense :P

I mean 50% of the enemies I encounter are naked if anyone has an explanation for that I'd love to hear it

lol, sorry. Just ran into the same problem this week whilst rebuilding an existing character. Had a loading screen with an all white NordHero sword, confirmed the issue in my trophies chest with Eduj. After google directed me here, MK's post pointed me to the culprit. I was able to pinpoint it further, and as no definite solution had been presented, I added an, albeit late, addendum for future tinkerers. As for missing armor and weapons, editing of BOSS/LOOT metadata can usually solve the issue, or, if necessary, the creation of a conflict resolution patch via TES5Edit.
