Selection Tool Suggestion

It can be really frustrating having to select multiple items inside of a square/rectangle selection tool. Especially with building designs that are more elaborate. It makes moving things around a nightmare because I always end up picking up items from other buildings and enclosures.

Would it be possible to add a "draw your own" selection tool in the future?

(Similar to the Photoshop lasso tool)

One tip I can give you is to create a “group” when creating something that way when your in the “group” edit mode you can draw a box around the items and nothing outside of the “group” will get selected.

Thanks for your feedback! I tend to get really frustrated with the group editing mode because a lot of the rotations and placements work really wonky when it's edited inside a group. If there is a way to build something first and then add it as a group later, that would make life so much easier. But maybe i just need to play around with it more to figure out how to get it to work the way i'm trying to place it in group editing mode.
