About this mod

Collection of small compatibility patches with Palaces and Castles Enhanced for load order flexibility, floating object/missing idle cases

Permissions and credits
Palaces and Castles Enhanced is a delightfully wonderful overhaul of the interiors of many unique places within Skyrim which - particularly for the scope - has surprisingly few major conflicts, thanks to the patches included with it. However, when going through my load order (which has a borderline absurd number of things which are added), I found a few places here or there which would have a book slightly floating or an NPC spawn point within a wall (which they'd pop out of after a few seconds). So I decided to run through and make any which I felt were needed, and am sharing any whose parent authors approve or are simply forwarding the changes in a combined manner. All patches are .esps flagged as ESL. A few of these have patches for LE, but these were made from scratch so the objects are likely in different locations - all placements involved in the mods below were personal choices on my part, but I tried to adhere to the original "theming" as much as possible. Many of these are not explicitly necessary and can be resolved via load order, but having the patch frees you up to have both mods in any order relative to one another, provided the patch is loaded last. Every patch forwards the image space changes from PCE. If you're using the ELFX patch from PCE, load that last.

Included Patch Descriptions

3DNPCs/Interesting NPCs - Main patch is included with PCE. Small CR patch with the PCE patch for SFCO included here.

AI Overhaul SSE - forwarded PCE changes to packages where conflicts (except keeping the AIO interrupt rules), shifted idle markers to match new interiors.

Amulets of Skyrim - Moves some necklaces/rings which were floating to new locations/settled them to the new surfaces.

Arcanum - A New Age of Magic - Shifts two placed tables to match new interiors

BadGremlin's Collection AIO - Moves a few of the fish to their appropriate locations in the new interiors. Note: Patch is for AIO, not for the Fishys .esp.

Cloaks of Skyrim - Moves a few placed cloaks to appropriate locations in the new interiors.

Dawnguard Arsenel - Forwards NPC persistency/new sandboxes, moves replaced weapons to new locations.

Elder Outfit Overhaul - Just a load order compatibility patch. Ensures Gerda spawns in her new location if EEO is placed after PCE

Embers HD - Load order compatibility patch. Both mods slightly move a single fire in different ways. Truthfully, you probably wouldn't even notice a difference without this one - it's pretty subtle, and honestly not necessary.

Enhanced Solitude Docks - Moves one patrol idle to be on top of the new topography from Enhanced Solitude Docks.

Guards Armor Replacer - Shifts placement of a few armors to match the new interiors, primarily in Castle Dour, Palace of the Kings, and Dragonsreach

Immersive City Gates - Moves the target to match ICG to the new Prison Marker location for PCE, with corresponding outdoor changes, and ties into the PCE Navmesh. Please note that this is based off of my cleaned version. It shouldn't technically REQUIRE it, but if you don't have it, make sure that PCE is lower in your load order than ICG to make sure you get the correct navmesh. I did not test, but I believe this should work with the non-JKs version, but not work with the Open Cities version - it's got one of the three changes needed, you can manually forward the changes to xx021D73 and 00058CF8 according to your version of Immersive City Gates.

Immersive Wenches - moves a couple idle markers to match the new interiors

Konahrik's Accoutrements - moves a couple objects in Dragonsreach to match the new interiors

Morrowloot Miscellania - Item Distribution - moves some of the placed items to match the new interiors.

Morrowloot Ultimate - same changes as the previous, but for the original flavor

Mystic Condenser - Moves Mystic Condenser objects to match the new interiors.

Open Civil War - Moves a couple markers inside of the Riften hall in order to not overlap with new objects. Tested on version 2.6.2

Realistic Water Two - Slight shift of soot water to match the new blacksmith trough location in Fort Dawnguard

Red Flame - Slight shift of one book which was hanging off of an end table

Royal Armory - Moves one placed sword and display case to new location to match Interior.

The Second Great War - Moves many references and objects to match new interiors, forwards cell changes from PCE. Thanks to Reath1 for sanity-checking my described changes. Please note that, due to the nature of many of the changes only being factored deep into the game, this patch is not fully tested. Please report to me any problems you run into.

Skyrim Artwork Imports - Moves any needed objects placed to match the new interior. Due to PCE using many of the same assets, if there's a conflict, I had PCE win out with its placement.

Skyrim Immersive Creatures - forwards changes to creatures in Fort Dawnguard to their new locations

Skyrim Improved Puddles - Shifts the puddles placed in Windhelm Bloodworks to match new interior layout

Skyrim Underground - Shifts a few of the entrances to match the new interiors. Patches available for both ESP and ESM versions. Install only one.

Skyrims Unique Treasures
- Shifts placed objects to match the new interiors.

Snazzy Furniture and Clutter Overhaul - Main patch included with either PCE or SFCO - can't recall which :) Two small CR patches with MLM and 3DNPC included here.

Solitude Dome Paintings - CR patch to have the changes to the dome in PCE match the new painting changes for SDP

Tamrielic Culture - Shifts placement of new objects to match new interiors

The Brotherhood of Old - moves two NPC spawn points to be within the bounds of the new interiors.

Thieves Guild for Good Guys - Shifts three quest items to new locations in PCE interiors

DX Ursine Armor Pack - Shifts the Imperial crafting manual to be within the bounds of Castle Dour

Vigilant - Hooks the new door in Windhelm Bloodworks to the navmesh, shifts a patrol marker to not overlap.

Weapons Armor Clothing and Clutter Fixes - Forwards reference changes to new locations

Weapons Armor Clothing and Clutter Fixes - Armor and Clothing Extension
- Forwards reference changes to new locations, shifts one placed pair of boots to a new location

Use a mod manager/organizer to install, or drop the loose files into you 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. All moved objects should have been moved to locations which are non-overlapping. Let me know if you hit anything
