Soft Selection tool for place where it's appropriate (generative tools, subd tools, general mesh editing): add ability to do random selections via a Pick tool selection window.  known as “soft select” in other applications I believe.   Offer options for random percentage of objects to be selected (via numeric input and slider).  Also offer a gradient map option so that one could select more objects on one side of the section (or however the gradient map is drawn - could be radial wavy, etc.).  This feature would really go work well with the recently introduced generative design tools.

Wouldn't it be nice also if you could get visual feedback of what is being selected in real time with such a tool while operating the slider after having previously area picked the catchment area. Or select the area first, and the slider causes a variable deselection to happen and pick up again if the slider is moved back again.
