Orbit Hanger Mods- Indicate Required Mods Field
For all mods on the OHM website, there should be a required field for required mods

For all mods on the Orbit Hanger Mods website, there should be an additional field to list required mods. Plus each required mod should be a hyper link. Only some authors do this.

Frustrating when authors say a certain mod is required, but they only give its informal name. Then you have to search for it endlessly to find it.

Yes, that's actually something that I'd like to see as well. Unfortunately there's no way to really support this.

These are the only obvious solutions that come to mind:
1. Create a list of commonly required add-ons that authors can mark their add-on as a dependent of.
2. Attempt to automatically look up add-ons mentioned in the comments section of a newly uploaded add-on and create hyperlinks. (probably completely unreasonable)
3. Recruit a group of moderators to maintain a list of add-on dependencies. Then provide the facility mentioned in option 1 and have said moderators review all recently uploaded add-ons to ensure that they have the correct dependencies marked.

The only thing that seems reasonable here would be to go with option 3. Just providing the ability to users doesn't mean they'll actually use it.

Does anyone have any better ideas?
