I want to do this for plushie making.  How do you know where to add additional segments to the tape pattern?  Like, just on curves?

Yes, wherever a contour changes you should add a seam.  If there's a large curve, you might need to break it up into several sections in order to keep it from flattening out.  The minimum number of sections for a large curved shape like a head or torso is 5 if you don't want it to look "faceted." The more detail you want, the more sections.    Smiley

The harder you work, the luckier you get.
