Inform Users of Required Mods (if any) When Downloading File

Since some players use other launchers and not the Curseforge App. Not all of them know they should check the Relations tab for Required Dependencies to also download as well. Especially since not all mods add a notice on their description page that it requires another mod.

Even when the Files page showed Related projects at the bottom, there are a good amount of users that either don't know those might be required mods, or might not see them (either due to their screen resolution not being enough to show it without scrolling down or just downloading the file and that's all). Since clicking download sends you to another page. Something like the example mockup image i've attached would be a great idea to have.

Another idea i had would be to have the Download File button be a dropdown list with 1 of the 2 options being "Download /w Required Mods".
