The alternative to "Select similar" command that selects not just objects of the same type, but objects that you consider to be visually similar! It uses different characteristics to compare objects such as polygon count and size. For instance, if you created several copies of a certain tree, you can select all the copies of this tree among a lot of other editable mesh.

Memento

New MaxScript. Simple and handy as aways. Free.
It's very useful for my use. You can quickly save and recall up to 5 groups of selections. You can increment memories adding objects to them (Which is SO useful in some situations (to help in the process of organizing big and messy scenes)...
Hide and Un-Hide from Memory buttons. Isolate groups, etc.

BTW, the video says QuickSelect, but i changed the script name to Memento.;)
