V.I.P.
I'm not sure if anyone else is interested in modding Dragon Age, but I've found some that greatly improve the game in lots of ways. It's worth noting that some mods seem to interfere with CHU's DA:O trainer, so you may be better off using it for the desired effect (eg increasing gold) before you play with these. Most of the mods I'm sharing will focus on improving the overall quality of the game in terms of armour, atmosphere and character appearance. No adult mods are to be included in this thread, we're keeping it PG-13.

Dragon Age RedesignedLink
This mod focuses mostly on the appearance of NPCs, things like correcting some of the disturbingly gaunt faces, adjusting features to better portray age and so on. It makes many NPCs seem a lot more alive, and less like 10 copies of the same model with different hair colours.

Improved AtmosphereLink
Similar to Dragon Age Redesigned, but on a much grander scale. This mod does things like making the NPCs walk around more rather than standing in one place. It also switches some NPC equipment so that armour is appropriate to the character in terms of tier. I'd say if you're going for just one, get this one. It even increases your chances of hearing party banter!

The Phoenix ArmouryLink
Armour for the ladies, it has a ceremonial appearance and is ideal for anyone playing a female rogue or you can put it on Leliana. It comes with matching weaponry and has four tiers, the bow even has a matching quiver!

White TeethLink
I'm sure you can guess what this one does.

Grey Wardens of FereldenLink
I love this one! It gives you armour in the style seen for the Grey Wardens in DA2. Especially brilliant for your Wardens in Awakening since you can make them match and feel like a true Warden-Commander. I feel like it adds another layer of immersion to have the Wardens in official armour.

Armour of the DevoutLink
A beautiful armour set for Leliana, modelled on Chantry symbols.

Armour of the StenLink
This adds a chest to Lothering Chantry containing an armour set for Sten, it's a set that fits him better than most others and means you're not starting out with him only in clothes.

Ser Gilmore... as a companion!Link
Those who played the Human Noble Origin will remember Ser Gilmore, the friendly knight who was under consideration to become a Warden. This mod allows you to find and recruit him, and includes the option of bringing both Gilmore and Dog into Awakening.

Silverite Mines Bug FixLink
Fixes the bug that sometimes crops up in Awakening wherein the Warden loses all of his/her equipment.

Wings of VelvetLink
A set of mage robes in a World of Warcraft style. They pretty and have some decent stat bonuses. Includes a staff and rings.

I recommend fully reading any instructions before installing, and always test the game with a mod after each installation rather installing them all in one go. Each mod lists whether any additional mods are needed for them to work, ignore these lists at your own peril.

I've also been working on some face mods myself. So far I've modded Morrigan and Wynne, and I've been working on Isabella, Isabella can be seen here: Link(I'm aiming to make her closer to her DA2 appearance)

ELITE
Camp storage Chest Link It adds a storage chest to your main camp site. It's pretty much the same as what you get after you finish the Warden's Keep DLC but it's at your camp so you don't have to travel to get to it. It requires you to use the daupdater.exe program in the program folder for Dragon Age (the bin_ship sub folder).

Lock Bash Link As the name implies, it allows warriors and mages to open locked chests. You have a chance to break whatever is in the chest and I don't think you get the normal xp a lock picking rogue can get. It also makes and rogue with lock picking in your party open it if they can.

Make Console commands visible Link As the name implies, it makes console commands visible (they aren't by default). Very important if you use the item cheat mod that is on this site.

Vigilance Fixed Link This mod fixes the conflicts that result in the Vigilance weapons in Awakenings from looking like the Starfang weapons from the Warden's Keep DLC. I don't recall having any issues with the Item Cheat mod while using this one.

Sigrun companion quest bug fix Link Fixes a potential bug with her companion quest in the Awakings expansion.

Gate Kisses Link This adds a bit of extra romance to the game at a certain point that I won't cover...Ok, so it's for the more sappy people who like the WAFF you can get in the game...Stop looking at me!

Alleykatze SA face mod for Leliana Link This mod changes Leliana's in game appearance to what she looked like in the awesome Sacred Ashes trailer Link There's nothing wrong with Leliana's appearance in game, but I loved how she looked in the trailer. This mod will take a bit of work since it needs a couple of other mods to work properly.

As QueenNic's says, "I recommend fully reading any instructions before installing, and always test the game with a mod after each installation rather installing them all in one go. Each mod lists whether any additional mods are needed for them to work, ignore these lists at your own peril." I would also suggest reading the comments of the mods.

You know, I avoided adding links to romance extras. If anyone would like any I can post some. I have a soft spot for one that includes sappy things like cuddling under a tree in camp. As an Alistair-romancer I'm especially fond of a mod that shows the royal wedding

I forgot to add initially, everyone should play the base game first before modding.

DLC Transfer to AwakeningLink
Fixes the bug that prevents transfer of DLC items, eg Starfang, Warden Commander armour etc.
