Okay, haha... I think it's pretty obvious on what I want xD... I wanna make a Sith Holocron for K1... it's part of a big mod that I am making :) ahaha... it's gonna be a holocron of Malak and I was wondering how one would go about creating a holocron, similar to the one in K2... I know I'll have to model, but ahaha... I need it for the mod xD

Well, modeling it probably wouldn't be so hard; aren't the holocrons just triangular pyramids?

Ahahaha... yeah, but the texturing part is my problem... >< I'm not that great at that... I'm not great at modelling, but I think I should be able to scrap one together... though it may look terrible ><

Well, if you want to get some texturing practice, this would definitely by the kind of model to do it with, since most/all of your surfaces will be perfectly flat, and texturing things with metal/glass/whatever material you may want to use is a lot more systematic than something like cloth. Decide on your material then hit Google for some tutorials.

As for the model, it shouldn't be that hard. A triangular pyramid is such a basic shape, I wouldn't be surprised if there was one in the selection of primitives.

Well, there you go. If you wanted to make it fancier you could probably just do some minor bevels/extrudes on the faces, or chamfer the corners a bit. Either way it's a simple mesh.
