    • General functionality improvements

      there are currently 2 websites doing the same:
      - [1] https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/jei
      - [2] https://minecraft.curseforge.com/projects/jei

      just looking differently, both are on curseforge and just use another url layout. get rid of one of them (preferably the first one cause its has way less functionality than the second one)

      (both have different comment sections -.-)

      the current search function on website [2] is useless. for everything you search it shows so much modpacks that you probably won't find what you're looking for except you know exactly the name. google is way faster and better.

      the search on website [1] at least recognizes…

      • Please write a 302 redirect to send 404's from /server-mods/ to /projects/

        Last year the content from /server-mods/ was reassigned to /projects/ and broke thousands and thousands of links on resource pages.

        Instead of waiting for us to contact the author of each plugin and ask them to overhaul each Wiki and resource page, can you write a 302 redirect to redirect requests for everyone automatically? They'r always used in this situation, it just looks like someone forgot. : ( It happens

        • Idea for Minecraft Mods section

          So for 1.13 and higher now, there is a few different ways for mods. Theres Forge we all know and love, and there is now Rift, and Fabric, and who knows what else to come. So my idea is, you know where you can select your MC version 1.13, 1.13.1, 1.13.2, etc. Perhaps add a section there that says 1.13.2 Forge, and 1.13.2 Rift so people can browse by forge mods for 1.13.2, and Rift mods for 1.13.2. This may help people browsing for mods, because if they dont read the mod file, they may not know that the mod…

          • The "Download Latest File" button should be renamed to "Download Latest Stable Release" or similar

            Currently, the "Download Latest File" button on CurseForge only downloads the latest release version, even if there are newer alphas/betas available. I understand why this is the case, but many players would rather have a later, more feature rich beta than an older release, since most mod betas are stable enough to be played.

            My suggestion is changing the button to read "Download latest stable release" and adding a dropdown option to download the latest alpha/beta version. Plus, there should be a persistent setting that lets you switch between downloading the latest release and downloading the latest alpha/beta.

            This applies…

            • Add the changes tab to the project side of the site

              On the user-facing side of the site we have a 'changes' tab to show the change log of the latest file https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/icbm-classic/changes This tab is not present on the project side of the side https://minecraft.curseforge.com/projects/icbm-classic and would be useful if it was included.

              • Separate project change log from file change log

                The site currently shows the change log for the last file uploaded. Which is good if the file was manually uploaded and a log was pasted in by the developer. Problem is a lot of mods only do change log for the current file, leave it empty, or autogenerate the change logs. This makes the change log tab on a project mostly useless.

                Ex: One of my own projects https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/icbm-classic/changes we use auto-generated logs which are not very human readable.

                My suggestion would be to separate the presented change log from the file change log. This will let developers keep…

                • API access to csv data

                  Right now we can export projects via csv 1 at at time. For developer like myself with 60 projects this is very inefficient and requires automation to get down quickly. What me and several other developers would like is an API driven way to access the data exported. This way we can feed it into other tools and software directly. As well integrate it with our sites for the projects.

                  • csv export as JSON

                    With the new csv export option it would be amazing if we could get this data as JSON. Right now its in csv format which can be tricky to parse consistantly. JSON is a lot easier to populate to software and can be feed into existing javascript tools for data display. This will allow developers to better ingrate tools with the data and improve usability while we wait on curse to implement graphs directly.

                    • See download history per Minecraft Version

                      With the new csv export option for projects it would be amazing to see download history by Minecraft Version. This would be move involved as it would take populating data based on file history. However, it could be used to give mod authors a better insight into which version has more support. If they see 1.13 for example only has 10 users but 1.12 has 1000. Then they can focus updates on 1.12 until 1.13 takes off.

                      • Forge

                        Show compatible forge build versions for a mod. Some gave minimal forge version, some have gaps in coverage, some have maximum forge version.

                        Also let us search for all mods working with a certain build.

                        In general some kind of continuous integration feedback. And while at it, make the ci test both on stand-alone and client so that users can quickly see on the kids page if it works only on client or server.

                            Add a Like/Dislike button to vote mods. Popularity will increase with Likes while will decrease with Dislikes. This will be really useful to tell easier which mods / modpacks are bad.

                              Would be cool to have a button that allows sharing to common social media platforms. This would help users promote mods they enjoy and drive more traffic to the site/mod. Main target could be twitter, discord, and reddit. As these are very common for sharing mods.

                              • You can MASSIVELY improve CurseForge simply by making the project search show whether something is a mod or a modpack.

                                I just now went out of my way to join a Discord server and tried to ask someone whether their mod Technomancy Revamped had the same issue as another 1.12.2 port of the mod called Technomancy. After much confusion and irritation on both sides of the conversation, someone mentioned to me that Technomancy Revamped is a modPACK, not a mod. The CurseForge search results give absolutely no indication whatsoever as to whether a specific result is a mod, modpack, texture pack, or whatever else it could be. I just wasted thirty minutes barking completely up the wrong tree because of…

                                  It would be very useful to have a reliable way of finding new mods on CurseForge. There is the ability to sort by the project creation date, however this is not the same as a project being new, and has many issues that can harm the discoverability of new projects.

                                  To give an example, many mod authors will create the CurseForge project page days/weeks/months before they upload a new file. The reasoning from this can vary but it's often because they want to reserve the slug ID, or an issue came up in development which has delayed release. Another possible…

                                  • Author Project Filter by type

                                    Would be nice to have a way to filter by type on the author project page https://minecraft.curseforge.com/dashboard/projects as it can be a pain once you get over a set number of projects. Mainly looking for a way to search for mods or modpacks. As well exclude unsubmitted and deleted projects.

                                      • Option to hide API/library mods from the list

                                        Many Minecraft mod makers upload API/library mods that are only needed to make their mods work, but are pointless to download otherwise. This makes an already very long mod list even longer and more difficult to browse, also because library mods look like content mods until you read the description.

                                        My suggestion is to add a show/hide checkbox to the "API and Library" category, and to make it hidden by default.

                                        • Has Dependency Icon

                                          Next to the mod download on main page there should be a small icon to say the file has dependencies. Right now if a user clicks the quick download option there is nothing to tell them there is dependencies. This information is hidden in the files page. Which very few users actually travel to check for dependencies. Many mod authors I've talked to have resorted to "HAS DEPENDENCIES" messages/links at the top of the page.

                                          This could be solved with a little icon, maybe even a number, next to the download button.
