About this mod

A collection of patches for Cities of the North - Dawnstar, primarily moving object placements to match the new interiors, along with a few worldspace patches. Now ported to LE.

Permissions and credits
These are simply converted from the SE Mod, published with permission of Janquel.
Thanks to Janquel and team (see below for full list) for the patches!

If you like this version, please download and endorse the original mod as well.
I will be adding more ports (see below), but it'll be a little slow.
Original Mod Description (some info doesn't apply to this version):
While building a modlist, I wanted to include Cities of the North - Dawnstar for its unique building designs, however it ran into a number of conflicts with item placements for other mods which I used. This resulted in a bit of a rabbit hole, teaching myself how to use the CK in addition to xEdit, and creating a series of patches which I felt others could use. This is my first time uploading something, so please bear with me, and I hope you enjoy. Each mod which has a patch is listed below, with specific details of all changes contained in spoilers. All patches are ESP flagged as ESL, so they will not take up load order space (unless you're at the thousands of patches level). As I'm now moving into maintenance mode, I'm adding which version of the parent mods is the most recent one I've actively taken a look at. If parent mods continue to update further, these patches may not work as intended, or may not do everything they're supposed to do.

Included Patch Descriptions (edited for LE)

3DNPCs/Interesting NPCs -  includes the1yunico's patch which moves Theron's location inside the Windpeak Inn, as well as a number of other markers for the A Path of Bones quest (link contains quest spoilers). Thanks to Gnewna for testing it out and giving feedback, it all appears to work aside from some glitches that exist in the original patch anyway. You will need a new game for this to work.

Amulets of Skyrim - Moves five amulets to their appropriate locations in the new interiors. Last checked against version 4.05

Cheesemod for EVERYONE - Shifts a few added cheeses to match the new interior. Checked against version 1.0.1.

Cloaks of Skyrim - Moves four placed cloaks to appropriate locations in the new interiors. Last checked against version 1.2.

Clockwork - Moves the trapdoor location to match new exterior. Last checked against version 1.0.3.

Denizens of Morthal - Conflict-resolution patch where a bedroll's ownership is changed. Last checked against version 1.0. You will need a new game for this to work.

Elder Outfit Overhaul -Just a load order compatibility patch. Ensures Madena and Frida spawn in their new location if EEO is placed after COTN - Dawnstar. Last checked against version 1.52.

Enhanced Lights and FX - Three patches available. Exclusive Patch has all of COTN - Dawnstar's changes to lights/objects forwarded, and removes all references added by ELFX. Inclusive Patch applies the ELFX lighting/effects to the new interiors as best as I was able, and includes new meshes for the Jarl's Keep/Inn. Install one of those two. Exteriors patch included separately. BETA- Last checked against version 3.04.

Equippable Tomes - moves one placed object in Silus's house to appropriate location in the new interior. Last checked against version 1.01

The Great City of Dawnstar - standalone patch with The Great City of Dawnstar, without JKs Skyrim as a requirement. Last checked against version 2.11 of Great City of Dawnstar.

The Great Cities - Minor Cities and Towns -simply master-swaps the GCoDS patch, seems to work fine, but consider this BETA. (a direct port didn't work very well, as it had NavMesh errors.Unless I'm missing something, both mods make the exact same changes to Dawnstar.) Checked against 2.0.

Guards Armor Replacer - Shifts placement of a few armor pieces to match the new guards' barracks interior. Last checked against version 5.5c

Helgen Reborn - Ensures Sorian and Orianthi spawn inside the new bounds of the Windpeak Inn during their quest. BETA. You will need a new game for this to work.

Holidays - Adjusts placement of decorations/fliers in the Inn so they match the new exteriors/interiors. Last checked against version 2.0

Legacy of the Dragonborn - Moves placed gems/sulfur in every house to match new interior. Moves fliers/drunk marker in Windpeak Inn to match new interior. Moves placed object in Dawnstar Museum to match new interior. Moves three barrels outside the Windpeak Inn to prevent clipping with museum shipping crates, if enabled. Works with/without JKs Skyrim, no other city overhauls tested, but exterior changes are small enough it should work with most any. Last explicitly checked against verison 5.0.<something in the upper 20s> but the changelog has never noted anything which should impact the patch through version 5.2.1 Checked against last version of LOTD LE and it works

More to Say - just forwarding a persistency/spawn reference point for one NPC. Specifically for the More to Say City Guards patch. BETA- master-swapped for AIO version. Last checked against version 8.0.1

Morskom Estate - resolves a couple conflicts, gets the navmesh/landscape to play with one another. Last checked against version 2.2

Thrones of Skyrim - Created for use with, but does not require Thrones of Skyrim. Adds a small dais under the throne in the White Hall, and shifts a few things in the banquet table to match the new layout. Navmesh is untouched, and probably should be, but all NPCs seemed to route just fine behind the table so I figured better to leave well enough alone.

Wintersun - Faiths of Skyrim - Shifts a trigger box in Silus's house to match the new interior. Last checked against version 3.1.5.

Use a mod manager/organizer to install, or drop the loose files into your Skyrim data folder. Patches should have their appropriate masters set, and should be loaded after any mods which they are patching. Some of the fixes in question are on persistent objects, and may require a new save.

I don't believe this should introduce any incompatibilities beyond anything which may be present between base mods. Let me know if you hit anything
