    I've personally seen a few map creators put a billboard with a texture on it with instructions with infomations on things.

    You seem to have ton of beam ng videos in there i see :D

    What i need is few 'text blocks' and few arrows. There's arrows already on as an asset though, but could be better. :)
    About changing textures no clue how to make those either im noob lol i dont know how to make one.

    This video is sortta kinda what your asking for, this video explains how to import a jpg or png with from Blender to BeamNG, if I want text I just type out the text and save it as a png then import it too BeamNG thru Blender....


    you can use a free online text creator like Cool Text Generator to create your text, then use Blender to convert it to a .dae object and export it to your beamNG level of choose...


    If you dont understand any of this let me know I will make a video explaining it step by step...
