Note on Description:
This is probably outdated, please check the Readme section, which is most probably more accurate.
This is a Patch for using 'Orden des Drachen' (engl. Order of the dragon), Midas Magic, Gates to Aesgaard 1, Frostcrag Reborn,Frostcrag Village and Unique landscapes:Snowdale all at the same time, but without nasty landscape issues.
It can be merged into your Bashed Patch, if you need the slots.
When using Order of the Dragon with other Mods around "Jerall Mountain"(the one next to Frostcrag), there are huge landscape issues like tears, misplaced path grids, and hidden rocks, because OotD changes the landscape around its castle a lot.
But I still wanted to use it with all the crapload of mods around that place, and so I created this patch.
It mainly changes the landscape, as I've tried to move as little objects as possible.That way I also could recreate some part of the landscape near the jerall glacier which would have been lost.
Also,the pathgrids around the area have been changed so they fit nicely; Most of it are just copied records from the OotD/Snowdale patch.
Landscape LOD Files are included as well, but they probably won't fit with vanilla Tamriel perfectly.
This is my first work as a modder and patcher, so I probably have done a lot of "bad" things; But it fits my needs, and I thought somebody might like to use this,too.

A: MANUAL (not rec.,if using so many mods you should use a mod manager.)
1. Copy the .esp file to (install folder)OblivionData
2. Start Oblivion Launcher, click 'Data Files', place a checkmark beside the .esp file(s).
B:Mod manager(USE it. ...No,seriously...USE IT.)
1.,2.,(...)Follow the standard procedures for installation.
(Okay, I made that particularly easy for me.)
1. Start Oblivion Launcher, click Data Files, uncheck the .esp file(s).
2. Delete the .esp file from OblivionData
2.delete mod.(You still got the archive,right?)
This will only, and I stress that, ONLY work with ALL the mods in the "requirements" section installed,sorted in the right order (BOSS) and activated.
If you use other mods, there will probably be more conflicts.If so, you need another patch, or you have to live with the land seams/tears.
Apart from this, there shouldn't be any problem.

Some of the Pathgrids may all not be properly aligned or at the right place.
