Is it possible to keep the Drawables and just change it's content or could this be problematic in conjunction with multithreaded rendering? Or should I just delete the Drawables and create new Drawables every frame?

  Is this stuff where you're actually creating/deleting nodes, or could you just use
switches, multiswitches or nodemasks to turn on and off nodes?
