The randomized single-file attachment file names really suck

We're building a system similar to itch.io and it's really a drag when the author uploads a zip file called "My Game.zip" but the resulting download is named something like "23498738432423_MyGame.zip_32498749824".  It's really hurting us from being able to do this, because the user downloads a game and then has no idea which file it's in.

I'm talking about database fields.

It needs to be unique on the server for obvious reasons. Download names can be influenced with HTML 5 though: https://davidwalsh.name/download-attribute

Why not just create a subfolder with a randomized name i.e. "2017_12 \ JFjkHFDKJHFKSJFHDSKFH \ MyFile.zip"?
