The ability to search and install specific mods directly in the app for custom profiles

It would be useful as it would make it easier and quicker to install them, rather than needing to open your browser and find the right version of the mod, download it and then drag it in for every mod that you wanted.


It would benefit anyone who is making their own Modpack for themselves, who don't want to leave the app to find all the mods and download them all separately. It would also work for people who aren't creating their own modpack, as there could be a feature to install a mod to an already configured modpack.


You could add tick-boxes for each mod, you could just tick the box for each mod you want to add to the profile, and then have an "Install Selected Mods" button, which would go ahead and download all the mods you selected and add them to the "mods" folder in the profile.

    1. Click on the picture of the modpack.

    2. Click on the button next to the Play button.

    3. Click on Profile Options.

    4. Check the Allow content management for this profile option if you want to edit the content of the modpack, uncheck it to disable.

    NOTE: The Allow content management for this profile option is what allows you to Delete, Disable, Update or Install any Mods, Resource Packs or Maps managed by CurseForge. It must be on to modify any of them! (Currently)
