reinstall all Merged

I do all of my modding through curse forge and every update to keep the integrity of my saves I delete the mod folder, and hand select the dates of mods by deleting them. I think mod shopping to be way more fun through the app because you can easily sort by date and it keeps the mods I use different each update. I know this seems silly, but for legacy games its easier to remake the characters each patch a few days after with the currently updated mods then to scour the internet for updated apps. That's what cursed forge is used for and I'm all for it! we have the update all button, but a nice addon would be to update all, because going through one by one and updating them is very time consuming and by the time I'm doing doing that a few times trying to see which mods I missed that are causing game glitches defeats the purpose of using the app to begin with. There are a much larger variety of mods online that I could do the manual work of hunting down exactly what I wanted instead of one by one reinstalling them. in fact if I used mods outside of the cursed forge I could easily organize my mods and honestly outside of the shopping time, reupdating my mods folder would actually be faster. So please please please if anyone from the Curse forge team sees this, ad a multi select or an reinstall all on the curse forge page. there has to be a way to do it and I'm not a tech expert, but if there was a way to have a "my mods" section that isn't immediately a reflection of what is inside my sims mod folder, it would take a lot of time out of modding our games. generally speaking, I delete my mod folder and would like a way to multi select or after I've deleted all the older version a way to hit download all. I hope this isn't something thats impossible to do because I don't know computer coding but I imagine there has to be a way to do this.
