Just to plant the seed of an idea. Can something like this be done for the NPE? A set of tutorials that could be minimized to run along with it. As someone else put it, handholding them while adding what the tutorial misses?

We did actually have a quite decent set of in-game video tutorials made by CCP themselves.
Sadly, they were not signposted nor given clickable links on the tutorial missions then they were suddenly removed for some reason.
Go figure.
