"Already installed" marker

It would be great to have a special icon to define already installled mods.

At the moment, I need to hover my mouse on the mod tab to check it ("Install" button or "Installed" msg) and it's not really convenient.

It would be better if we could see some marker right on the mod's icon/tab. So we could easily see which of the listed mods are already installed without hovering on all of them distinctively.

    Admin response

    Thank you for the feedback, the recent version of CurseForge has this feature implemented and you should be able to distinguish install mods easier now!

    Oh! I finally see it! thank you!

    Will that "check mark" be changed to smth else if mod is installed but is needed to be updated?

    In the previous version you had to hover each one to see whether it was installed, in a recent update, we added a checkmark that shows on every installed mod without the need to hover it.

    If this "already exists", could we get instructions on how to do this? Also, is there a self-update feature within the Curseforge app itself?

    I dont know if admin will see this but it does not work. The app is telling me I can download the same files without it knowing it was downloaded the day prior.

    In which version it's "already exists"? I still have to hover each mod distinctively to check if that mods are installed.

Hold on!
