red/magenta face of a NPC - what is causing this?

Question

Relevant system specs:

Mod Organizer

BOSS used to order esps

STEP Extended with some custom mods - possibly relevant extra: ELFX, for re-lighting interiors.

 

I was walking through Dragonsreach today and noticed the girl from Willy Wonkas Chocolate Factory:

...Except this time she ate strawberry gum. A girl named Dagny. This new forum doesn't allow me to upload for some reason. It's a shame because I have 3 screenshots. Basically, the girl's face is very magenta and looks almost normal color at times depending on her position relative to light sources. Her hand is normal color. Does this mean that it's some sort of "tintmask" issue on the face?

 

I said to myself, "that's not right; what could be causing this?"

 

I disabled Xenius Character Enhancement and New Children in MO and ran the game to see if the issue occurred with them disabled, and the issue remained. I also tried disabling ELFX, and the issue remained.

 

Do I have to also do something to refresh the NPC in the console commands in addition to disabling mods that originally cause this issue?

Apparently, it was in my DDSOpted Textures.bsa files. I DDSOpted them before and had a drive failure a while back, while I was transferring my data from old drive to backup drive the messed up drive kept failing sometimes partway through file transfers. I thought I was able to safety complete all transfers, but perhaps some files got corrupted by being incompletely transferred without me realizing it. I am re-DDSOpting the Textures.bsa files and hopefully that resolves the problem. I also hope that I don't run into other corrupted files as well (like in the other Vanilla BSA files that I previously DDSOpted. I don't want to have to run them ALL through the DDSOpt process again because it takes a LONG time to process them, even with a SSD.

 

EDIT: It did resolve the problem. No more boiled lobster-faced Dagny. :)

Does anyone know what this is? That one girl had a bright magenta face in certain lighting, like near the main hall fire pit. The other children were normal.

Woah that's some corrupted textures for sure. Looks like she was boiled alive. Checked all of the mods related to kids. Dirty Children, HRDLC , Xenius, Non Esssential Children etc.
