Help shape the future of CurseForge!

Soften up restrictions for API access to 3rd party

The one of advantages of Curseforge's platform was the ability to choose how you want to experience modpacks, with what launcher and such. With new announcement, Overwolf wants to restrict the choice of how want to play. New projects will automatically restrict them to curseforge only, and creators couldn't even know about this.

Please reconsider some of decisions here. Players deserve a choice of how they want to play.

If you have twitter, post your answers as #SaveModdedMinecraft

Edit: Hi, this is author of the idea, TrashboxBobylev. This blew up, and some things were false. Please read this post twice before posting, it's not as bad as it was sounding.

    Thank you for the feedback and everyone who voted and commented. At this point we do not have plans of changing the submission flow. Every author can choose the option that suits them, there's no default choice.

    I think the best "default" choice is to delete everything from curse and put it on github. It's always been poorly run, but damn, good job Satan.

    Just give up on CurseForge and Twitch - it's clear they have zero consideration for users and are happy to ruin the platform for profit.

    MultiMC 4 Life

    I will be moving away from using any mods that rely on Curseforge for hosting their mods/modpacks because of this. I understand as a business you need to make money but taking away a feature people are used to without at the very least providing an alternative is just a stupid business decision.

    As a linux player this makes me completely unable to use modpacks at all, as multimc and polymc are my only options. Because of this move, it's become impossible for me to play just about any curseforge modpack.

    I support the idea of moving to a system like on Nexusmods. If you have a premium subscription, you can download unlimited mods through 3rd party apps like Wabbajack.

    To further iterate on my comment below, I urge any creators against this change to seek other platforms, communicate with fellow creators in this endeavor.
