Help shape the future of CurseForge!

Offline access to CurseForge (modpacks and other offline games)

In the event where the user does not have an internet connection, it should be possible to use the app to lunch modpacks, so people don't have to manually add profiles to their Minecraft launcher just in case their internet goes down.

    They can't make money off of you if it's offline, so offline use is of no importance to them.

    for minecraft there is a work around for this kind of thing... ya can just install forge/fabric in the normal launcher, from there have the launcher point to your installation to the instance folder that you already have, and everything will work the same

    Are ya’ll kidding me!? My internet is down for a week and I’m all like,” Oh, sweet I’ll just go play Minecraft! NOPE, you have to have internet to play the Mod Pack that you downloaded for SOME REASON!

    I have internet access but the CurseForge website is is currently down. I am unable to launch any modpacks that I already have downloaded because it won't list them in the launcher.

    Requiring an active internet connection to launch games is ridiculous. I like the idea of sharing ad proceeds with mod developers, but I will be uninstalling curseforge and using better-made launchers until this obvious flaw is addressed.

    I work on ships and i dont always have an internet connection, during my off time i like to play some MC with a few mods. Every time i start up the game for some reason it has to download 20MB, which is a lot if you are in the middle of the ocean. A game that can be played offline with mods that have been downloaded is being blocked by this money-grabbing launcher only for their ads. I will look for a different way of playing offline and stop giving this greedy company ad revenue asap.

    When I lose internet I cann't play my worlds anymore. I can't even open up the launcher without needing the internet. THIS NEEDS TO BE CHANGED IMEDIATLY!!!

    I actually just download off curseforge and use MultiMC for this very reason.

    Why is haven't this been a thing before hand, when I download an app to my PC for modpacks mostly I don't really expect it to need internet, unless I need to download something or it's has other type of functions to internet uses, ofc there is the part of that the modpacks have a small storage of their own to the app so to access that storage would need internet connection, but it's not that much space. Should have been a feature in the first place tbh.

    I still live with my parents (as of the time this was posted) and they have a time limit on my internet, but don't care if I continue playing offline.

    An offline CurseForge app would also be wonderful for people who have a crappy internet connection.

    Of course not all features will be available, like searching modpacks obviously.

    But you should not prevent those that do work! Like opening fucking game!

    WTF. If I don't have internet, I still want to be able to play my modpack! The app doesn't require internet, you are just artificially preventing it for no reason!

    Yes of course you want ads, but that shouldn't mean you prevent them from using it at all otherwise!!

    This doesn't even get more people to see ads! All this achieves is losing users because people with inconsistent internet are forced to use a different launcher!!

    pretty sure the reason is they want ads

    How tf is this still not planned after so long. This is litterally the easiest thing to do and would resolve a big problem with Curse. Not gonna use this shit any more.

    This is why I stopped using Curseforge software it is crap. On top of a bunch of bugs, you can't play offline. I only play single player. I don't join servers or host anyone. Yet I can't play any of these modpacks offline in this software. Hopefully somone creates a better alternative since this basic feature is still not planned. Curseforge cares nothing for the mod community. They prioritized gettings ads running over basic features.
