Reuse parts group (inter-drone clipboard)

Suggestion

So when you edit a drone, there are times you wish you could borrow stuff from drones you already made.

With a save as parts group  button while having a bunch of parts  selected (the one selected and all the ones hooked up to it), It would then be possible to reuse parts arrangements in multiple drones instead of without rebuilding from duplicates (or even from scratch).

Basically it would be like a big inter-drone clipboard.

Let's add an option to make some sort of templates from a bunch of parts.

Those templates can be organised in a list like weapons and are always accessable in the editor (button to toggle on/off) independent of the drone that is edited right now.

Probably the list should have some decent sorting functions to find the right thing. Like search for thrusters, weapons and stuff.

The possibility to copy a selection and then paste it in another drone is incredibly useful. Upvoted :)

I don't think it will be viable in the near future, but just as a discussion: :)

I think it might be funny/useful to have a huge "scrapyard" where you can place different drones into one file/space, and you can copy and paste freely and build stuff/experiment. The drone you have selected last is the one which will be used in the simulation scene. And if you are happy with one construction, you can then either export/save it to a new file or simply copy it and then paste it in a new file. Just thinking out aloud, no plans :)
