The Sauerbraten selection is very basic at the moment: it is possible to select cube and to delete and extrude those. Extrusion is only possible in one direction, therefore each selection has a direction which can be changed.
The goal of this document is to propose a much more powerful selection tools and a roadmap how to implement those.
- Selections with complex shapes
- With diagonal edges
- With multiple elements, not touching each other
- With multiple cube sizes
- 3D Extrusion/Intrusion
- Expansion? Objects just becoming bigger?
- More modes?
- Automatic selection
- Wizard staff
- Surface only
- Coop Edit/sharing of selection
- Saving of selections
- Programmatic selection. DSL?
- Add hints on which keys to use
- Add GUI that can completely replace the keys
