Some ground rules that should go without saying:
Discussions on modding paid DLC into the game is against the rules, this thread is for community made mods and tweaks only.
Don't post or directly link nude mods.
If you think a costume / character mod is pushing it, it's probably better to link it rather than posting in-line, and mark it as NSFW.
This thread is going to get updated a lot as new mods and modding tools come out, if you have any suggestions for it let me know. I'll feature high quality / popular mods / tutorials etc in the OP, and probably add more categories for when a larger variety of mods start rolling in.
DiZpel Resolution Mod - A small .dll and .ini file that allows you to use any resolution you like that isn't officially supported by the game (2560x1440 for example). It uses d3d9.dll but it can be used in combination with ReShade / SweetFX / GEMFX etc.

SweetFX - Another injector with presets, images courtesy of GAF user squarealex.
GEMFX - A cool injector with a ton of options and post process filters, built on SweetFX. You can play DOA5 in windowed mode and tweak settings in real time until you have it looking the way you want.

Installing texture mods with uMod - To install any of the texture replacement mods in the Mods section, follow these steps.
If your game runs at an unplayable speed when combining uMod and SweetFX / GEMFX: Try this version of uMod instead: https://code.google.com/p/texmod/downloads/detail?name=uMod_alpha_v2_r51.zip&can=4&q=1. Download uMod v2 r53 https://code.google.com/p/texmod/downloads/list
2. Extract it and run uMod.exe
3. Main > Use global hook
4. Main > Add game (navigate to your DOALR game.exe)
5. Run game with uMod still open
6. Alt-tab out of the game
7. Drag .dds files from Windows explorer to the blank white space in uMod under 'Title | A | D | Author' etc
8. Go back into the game, with uMod still running
Done!! Run uMod before running the game each time to have your modified textures.
If your texture mods stop showing up in game: Check uMod is running. Make sure you didn't change the file directory of your modded textures - uMod won't be able to find them again if you move the files in Windows explorer. Delete them from uMod by right clicking them > "Remove package" and repeat step 7.
Texture extraction and editing with uMod - Tutorial on how to extract, edit, and then apply your modified textures. Credit to Feind Busa on FreeStepDodge, and Bayonetta on NeoGAF (I recommend Bayonetta's tutorial as you can manually select which assets to extract in-game rather than ripping all textures that are on screen, but I'll leave Feind Busa's tutorial up for people who prefer that method) Edit: I added my own tutorial which is based on Bayonetta's, but covers a .dds workflow with Photoshop rather than a .png workflow, along with a few other changes.

I change the value for more or less effect. When you're finished, save the file. ReShade updates the rendering of game.C: Download a preset
