I had just recently switched over from MediaFire to Forge for my resource pack on MinecraftForums, and I was wondering if there was a way to simply replace the file on an already uploaded file.
MediaFire allowed me to do this and I was able to keep track of the amount of downloads easily and not having to go in and edit my Mincraft Forum Page every time I released an update/patch to my resource pack to change the link.
Literally, updating the pack was easy since it was a simple upload and hitting "replace file". I didn't have to update the link in the forum page and the download count kept the same. With Forge, it doesn't seem that way, or at least I can't find it. Forge has a "total downloads" counter, so keeping track of the download count won't be a problem. It's just the fact that I have to reupload a new pack with a new link every time I update that puts me off.
