Simplified Skyrim Main Menu Screen Replacers by insane0hflex (aka svaalbard on the Skyrim Nexus).


This mod is rather a simple one - it will replace the the black menu screen and the Skyrim symbol/logo, with a "Simplified" screenshot.

These are all screenshots I took that have been processed in Photoshop to have a painting like appearance, for a simple and visually pleasing look.

These are not individually painted pieces of digital art.

In total - there are 20 different main menu replacers to choose from. Check out images tab for a preview of every main menu replacer. Also, feel free to submit me your screenshots if you want me to "simplify" it, and include it in the next release.

[size=15]How to Install[/size]

1. Download, then extract to any location.

2. Open the simplified_skyrim_main_menu_wallpaper_replacers folder, and you'll see a DATA folder.

3. Copy paste the DATA folder to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim\

4. You might be asked to overwrite or merge files/folders, click yes to all.

5. Now, to choose a simplified main menu to replace the default one - the name of the folder is the general name/concept behind the screenshot. In the folder, there is also a "preview" image you can view to see if you like it or not.

6. Copy that file inside the folder, which is called, and place it into:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim\Data\textures\interface\objects\

7. If you are asked to replace whatever file that is (, select yes if you wish to do so.

8. Start Skyrim and enjoy!

Also - I highly recommend to get No Loading Menu Smoke - removes the fog/smoke fx on loading screens and the main menu.

[size=15]How to Uninstall[/size]

1. Delete the file in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim\Data\textures\interface\objects\

2. Delete logo.nif in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim\Data\meshes\logo\
