Good 3D letter objects are rare and tricky in LBPK, so I've just created a new stylised race track with a carefully-crafted object typeface from A- Z that you can collect by letter to use in your own creations.

'Win' to collect an exclamation mark, 'Loot' to collect a question mark, and 'Star' the track to win a grouped full alphabet set for even easier 3D wordsmithing (Simply ungroup it and use Grid Snap to copy-type the words you want)

The race is called:

Alphabet Avenue

Enjoy, feel free to post links to uses you find for the letters in your LBPK tracks. It'll be interesting to see!

Those look nice! I'll queue It for when I need letters and feel lazy.

Tried it....loved it! Great originality & great use of props!

I got to play it. Did you use up alot of the thermometer? I'd suggest putting that circling "Alphabet Avenue" banner all over the place -- it was a really nice visual effect. Good track, too.

Thanks for the plays and feedback everyone, hope you got all the letters you'd like for your own things. Look forward to seeing some uses!

Demo-ing the 3D letters all over as words, banners, abstract shapes, jumps etc did really burn up the therm (pretty much to max) so alas the letter-roadsurface section got cut shorter than I'd wanted, dropped any opening cinematic, and the 'Lap 3 detour' became simpler than planned.

Interestingly I also noticed that the type of glass / concrete (forgotten the name) road / bridge and fence combo used up lots of therm too - which I didn't expect - thus some more distant banners are 2D photos / stickers of words instead.
