Do I remember that there's a way to scale a whole figure down in size but keep line thickness the same as it was on the original? If so, how do I do it? I just can't seem to remember. Thank you.

If the stroke width has been applied as a Layer Style, then you can select the layer and go to Layer > Layer Styles > Scale Effects... and set it to 100%.

By @stiano

 

Basically, this is how vector data behave. You can't do it with pixel data.

 

So either you go to Illustrator, or stay within Photoshop's very limited vector capabilities. I think Myra's suggestion is probably about the only way to do this in Photoshop.

 

But I'd recommend doing this in Illustrator on true vector data.
