How to fix PUBG Mobile texture problems: What to do when textures aren't loading in, or buildings don't show up

When PUBG first launched in 2017, it had its fair share of annoying bugs. The most frustrating of these was the issue of buildings not rendering in after landing on the map. This issue would see players getting trapped in buildings, walls or other elements of the world.

While PUBG has certainly come a long way since its launch, this is still a prevalent issue for many, even for those who play PUBG Mobile.

If buildings aren't loading in when you drop onto the new Livik map in PUBG Mobile, for example, here are our suggestions on how to fix it.

Move PUBG Mobile to internal storage

As many phones do not have the most internal storage, buying a MicroSD is an easy solution for those who want to play games like PUBG Mobile or Fortnite on their Android devices.

However, files stored in a MicroSD will be transferred to your phone's RAM slower than if you store the game in the internal storage.

We'd suggest clearing space or transferring files so you can move PUBG Mobile to your internal storage as this may speed up its transferring of files and to the RAM and subsequent rendering in of PUBG assets.

Close all other apps running in the background

Again, if PUBG Mobile is experiencing rendering problems, it may be because your phone's RAM is too low to hold both the game and other apps.

We'd recommend closing all the other apps and even restarting your phone, to ensure PUBG Mobile is prioritised by your device.

Optimise PUBG Mobile's Graphics Settings

While those who play games like Fortnite or Call of Duty will deem that PUBG Mobile is not graphically impressive, it still puts a strain on your device when running at its highest settings.

If textures aren't loading in, then we'd highly recommend running PUBG Mobile on its lowest settings.

To do this, go to the Settings menu and select the Graphics tab. You'll want to set the Graphics to Smooth and turn off Anti-Aliasing to boost performance.

Aside from that, we'd recommend disabling Shadows and the Auto-Adjustment of graphics.
