    I've got a mod set up, everything seems to be working fine, except none of my artwork appears (no icons, no leader textures). I've gotten other mods working fine, and I tried to follow the same steps, but I must've done something wrong and can't figure out what. I've tried looking at Modding.log and ArtDef.log. Modding.log shows my textures being loaded:

    Code:
    [1225174.650] Status: Mods - Loading Textures/ART_LEADER_NEM_CLOVIS_I.dds
    [1225174.650] Status: Mods - Loading Textures/ART_LEADER_NEM_CLOVIS_I.tex
    [1225174.650] Status: Mods - Loading Textures/CLOVIS_I_BACKGROUND.dds
    [1225174.651] Status: Mods - Loading Textures/CLOVIS_I_BACKGROUND.tex
    [1225174.651] Status: Mods - Loading Textures/FALLBACK_NEUTRAL_NEM_CLOVIS_I.dds
    [1225174.652] Status: Mods - Loading Textures/FALLBACK_NEUTRAL_NEM_CLOVIS_I.tex
    [1225174.652] Status: Mods - Loading Textures/ICON_NEM_CLOVIS_I_256.dds
    [1225174.652] Status: Mods - Loading Textures/ICON_NEM_CLOVIS_I_256.tex
    <etc>
    
    ArtDef.log shows it loading my ArtDef file:

    Code:
    [2017-12-11 23:41:02]    Added art file 'Clovis_I: 7f0adbf3-866a-4ac7-9c48-de54eb75b7a1' to the ArtDefProvider.
    
    I can't find any error messages in either log.

    What steps should I take to diagnose why my textures aren't showing? Are there other logs I should look at? Any suggestions for common errors which might cause this to happen?

    I think I figured this out. In my Mod.Art.xml file, my UITexture and LeaderFallback sections were empty, I needed to fill them in with my xlps:

    Code:
            <Element>
                <libraryName text="LeaderFallback"/>
                <relativePackagePaths>
                    <Element text="LeaderFallbacks"/>
                </relativePackagePaths>
            </Element>
    ...
            <Element>
                <libraryName text="UITexture"/>
                <relativePackagePaths>
                    <Element text="UILeaders"/>
                    <Element text="LeaderBackgrounds"/>
                    <Element text="LEADER_NEM_CLOVIS_I"/>
                    <Element text="Icons"/>
                </relativePackagePaths>
            </Element>
