Make the app download packs anyway if mods can't be found, printing a list of missing mods so players can manually install them

It's basically the only downside of this launcher. If you're trying to play an old modpack, you can't just download it and go - if a mod(s) are missing, it just cancels the entire download.

It'd be great if it download the pack anyway and gave you a list (say, a pop-up that copies to a text file in the main CF install folder) so you can add any mods that are missing (I've noticed a few cases where the mod is still up on CF, but the old version the pack uses is gone - so you can just manually download the new version off of CF if you want to).
