For some reason my Blender doesn't want to load the texture in render mode. Texture is loaded by Blender with no issues, I can see it in texture mode, in preview of material. Just not on the model itself. Instead I get pink error of no texture. Render view

material preview

Node setup

Texture mode, texture is that dark, had to zoom in Material mode to brighten the texture preview

    $\begingroup$ What's the point of unwarping the mesh if the UV is correct? It just doesn't load the texture in RENDER VIEW. $\endgroup$ – Hid Dec 21 '18 at 16:21
  • $\begingroup$ have you change from solid mode to texture mode $\endgroup$ – atek Dec 21 '18 at 16:28
  • $\begingroup$ To make the texture noticable (because otherwise it's very dark) I print screened here the Material Viewmode. And as you see it loads texture there fine. Render Viewmode? Nope. $\endgroup$ – Hid Dec 21 '18 at 16:36

    $\begingroup$ This is a texture loaded from a file. $\endgroup$ – Hid Dec 21 '18 at 17:10

Solution for this one was saving file (that was dds) as png and loading the texture from png file.
