[Pack downloading and queuing]
maybe add a download button to download a modpack from the launcher before playing? that way you don't have to launch the game before downloadin a texture-/resourcepack from the launcher, right now i have to leave the game before I can do this. Which is not exactly what I want, because sometimes it can take a minute or two before it is completely launched after which I can close it to download the texture-/resourcepack.
I have the problem that I may not want to play a particular modpack, but maybe try it out later. So by adding a download button, and possibly a download queue we can hopefully make it so that users can download a pack, but not launch it immediately.
TLDR; Using the modpack version selector, selected modpack, and a download button to add the downloading of a modpack to a queue. Giving users the ability to download without launching.
I photoshopped a possible location for the download button below.
Add the option on the filters to show only the modpacks that have valid installations on the disk. Check that the modpack folders contain a valid 'version' file, and display the names located in those version files.
— Text filter
Nothing major, if you go to text filter and you close the window with the 'X' it closes the entire filter window, parent and text string search box.
— Edit Mod Pack
The 'edit mod pack' button is enabled, even if the selected pack is not installed.
Alright, my spiel is over.
