Greetings!With a lot of work continuously being done on the Chimera Build, I wanted to get a few things out of the way. It is easy for tutorials etc to be left till the last moment and we're hoping to avoid that for the Early Access Release. So to start with that I've gotten rid of the old Help Panel.In favor of somethin...
