Main Menu Spinning Skyrim Emblem
This simply makes the Skyrim emblem on the main menu spin 360 degrees every 8 seconds to help you appreciate the nifty emblem’s curves and reflections.
I just made this mod for the fun of it. The main menu emblem is cool but I didn’t like that I couldn’t get to admire its shiny-reflective goodness since it didn’t move.
Hence, I’ve made it rotate 360 degrees every 8 seconds (now with 4, 8, 12, and 16 second version). Now you can admire the rotation as you start up Skyrim.
I also modified the normal map to add more bump and detail since I felt the original was too flat (and had some gradient issues also).
Pick which speed you want to use. Most like the 8 or 12 seconds versions. The video above uses the 8 seconds version. Then download one of the four archives.
Then just unpack the archive to your Skyrim folder or use Nexus Mod Manager.
This mod only installs two files:
v1.01 – February 7, 2012
Used the loading screen logo mesh as a base for this since it had better UV mapping.
Updated my normal map to use Bethesda’s HighRes Texture Pack as a base.
v1.00 – February 4, 2012
