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.
(Originally suggested by ASONE)
