Add option to change download location when installing mods/CCs

By default, all mods and CCs downloaded from the CurseForge app goes into the Mods folder. Giving the option to change download location would help with organizing these files.

My suggestion:

  • Add two radiobuttons in the Settings portion:

    • Option 1: Change download location.

    • Option 2: Ask download location each time.

    Thank you for the feedback, we are currently researching ways to implement more organization in the client.

    I have literally spent the last 3 days trying to figure out how to circumvent this so I can use mods. I'm about to fully give up on curseforge and try a different client because of this.

    PLEASE! This would help a lot. The app is kinda useless for me until it has this feature.

Hold on!
