What's the best way to scale lineweights?

I've never really had an issue with this before because I mostly do single family homes and stick to 1/8" or 1/4" for my drawings and details at 1-1/2".

Anyway, we're helping a colleague out with a massive hotel project where there are floor plans at much smaller scales. The lineweights are just too thick at those scales.

How does everyone else do this? Create different pen sets for different scales? I'm just not sure how to best proceed here.

Thanks.

Yes, I think Pen Sets is a good solution. Even the default Archicad Template file contains a few Pen Sets for M 1:100 and M 1:50.
