Reccommended Dragon Age: Orgins mods.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm fixing to load up DA:O again. I haven't kept up with the mods for it at all. I'd like some suggestions if you would. I realize there is a mod site (nexus) but I would rather have OCN's opinions. Game fix mods are a must, so if you could point me to any and all I'd be grateful.

Mods I once had:

Advanced Tactics
Nightmare Plus (increase difficulty)
Random Enemies
New Icons
Detailed tooltips
DA redesigned

I'm not much on the nude/sex mods, and I don't really care for the texture mods either. Item mods MUST be balanced if I install any.

I was looking into Quests and Legends. Anyone have any thoughts on it?

DAModder
Advance Tactics
Nightmare Plus
slinks s3 RAVAge (random enemies)
The Icons Project
Detailed Tooltips
Dragon Age Redesigned
Character Re specialization
No Helmet Hack 1_6
Morrigan Restoration Patch
Dark Times ACT I
Dragon Age Class and Specialization Pack
Skip the fade

I had a helmet on/off mod - it really annoyed me having a decent set of gear and some ugly, unwieldy helmet.

Ah yes. I've been away from the game far too long. I totally forgot about this one. A must get. Also another I just thought of was the one the gives Sten two specializations. Thanks.

Although they don't bug me, I remember having one that disables them during dialog. Or, it may have been character dependent. IIRC, I had it where mages never had anything on their head. Any help finding it is greatly appreciated.


If you guys would be so kind, please add links. I will include them in the original post for any future viewers.

It's been a while since I've played but here are some suggestions:

Morrigan Restoration Patch

Dragon Age Class and Specialization Pack

As far as quest/new lands/npcs/ect, it really depends on taste... What the author of Quests and legends has accomplished is fairly impressive(size, scope, VA, new content - skills, spells, a guild you can takeover and build/expand, loot specific containers that free up inventory space, a new companion and numerous new areas). But combat is over the top, knife throwers that one hit kill my tank, huge battles some with multiple boss level enemies(10+) and massively overpowered loot. It's also a bit linear, but I'd recommend it just for the containers that free up inventory space - A quiver that removes all arrows/bolts from inventory, a potion bag that stores all potions/grenades/poisons(except those that have been placed on the quickbar), a gem bag, a crafting items container and even a gift bag.

Also worth noting, I'm not sure if Quests and legends is compatible with Offkorns classpack, or if it is compatible with dark times(another fairly large mod that adds new land masses and companions)...

dark times

-EDIT-

Some people really don't like replaying the fade(myself included), so skip the fade might be crucial if you've already done it once.

Skip the fade


Quite a few armor and weapon mods too, but I never really tried those out...

The top 100 non-adult files is always worth checking out if you wish to avoid the nude mods.

Many thanks, I haven't seen any of those mods, except skip the fade. Great suggestions.
How could I forget DA modder.

Anyone know of any good weapon/armor mods that have new models? It seems 95% of them are just re textured vanilla ones. I'm not concerned about the stats being over powered as I'll just balance them myself.

I found the random enemies mods. It seems the author has a lot of changes since my original playthrough, including the name(slinks s3 RAVAge). It could be a different mod altogether. The only problem I have is the overpowered stats of the items dropped. Who knows, with all the increased difficulty that may not be a bad thing. I'll have to test it out.
