When playing on servers (confirmed for Cubecraft, The Hive and Galaxite) for long amounts of time, textures will start to change to pink. This is mainly for skins, but can also include UI, HUD, blocks and even the sky. Once glitched, the pinkness does not disappear until Minecraft has been restarted and it follows the user into single-player worlds as well. Finally, it will cause a crash when rejoining any server.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Join any server
  2. Play for a prolonged period of time (about 2-3 hours)
  3. Look for any unusual pink textures whilst playing

Observed Results:
Other players’ skins will turn to a neon-like pink, possibly other textures too.

Expected Results:
Textures should not change from what they were before.

Update 6/4/22
Based on what Daniel & Matt Clarke have said, previously loaded skins do not get released from memory, causing it to slowly increase. This then prevents new textures from loading, therefore causing the textures to appear pink.

A more specific way to reproduce this now is to play Murder Mystery on The Hive for a long time. The map “Museum” may help speed up the process too.
