Q. How much does the complexity of the sculpt affect the thermometer?
A. The game is designed to cope with that style of modelling. A carved shape has almost the same amount of pixels as a solid shape. Hundreds of thousands of edits to add a little bit. We record all your actions so you can go back into them so that adds a little bit to the cost. But we have character models which cost pretty much the same as the sphere they were carved from.

Q.Does scale affect the thermometer? Are there limits to scaling up and down
A. Not really answered, but pretty big and pretty small looking at it.
