Intersecting with a selection

Post by lucassss » Sat May 07, 2016 11:38 pm

I think that it would be awesome if one could "intersect with control group" with a hotkey. This can be used together with 'w' to select all units on the map and then intersecting them with an existing control group. This would allow an easy option to "select all units of a specific type in a currently attacking force".

Another useful intersection operation could be "intersect with rectangular selection" which would allow one to select all units of a type and then reducing the selection only to a specific square (yes, I know that truly dynamic zoom and the 'w' key will make this useless).

I suggest that both option can be achieved by using ALT as a modifier key (ALT-1 means "intersect with control group 1", ALT while dragging the mouse means "intersect with rectangle")
