Newbie questions!

I am a new user to Curvy 3D and have a couple of questions:
- what is a Sculptie and how do I use them?
- can someone please explain how Curvy bones are used?

Many thanks!

Sculpties are for the 3D social online world "Second Life". They unwrap a 3D object into a 2D coloured texture map - so Second life can then download the texture (eg: as a JPG) and wrap it back into a 3D model.

Curvy Bones are a somewhat experimental feature, here is a tutorial

I'm looking into ways to make bones more natural and useful (while avoiding a lengthy setup process)

Excellent - thanks! I don't think I'll need Sculpties but the bones stuff looks really useful!
