Check if you're using straight quotes. If you're copying your code from the online manual, it's using curly quotes that unfortunately SE doesn't like.
All information regarding what's wrong can be somehow retrieved by looking at the console (tilde key) and in your se.log, you could use pastebin.com to upload it and share it here.

Well, your suggestion solved the naming problem, thnks.

Unfortunately it does not create the ship and no files have been generated, here is the log file:

Can you post your current .sss script and your .cfg script?

Can you post your current .sss script and your .cfg script?[/quote]

Here os the .sss:

Name "Cobra"
Class "Starship"
Pack "40K"
Faction "ImperialNavy"
Length 0000.000
Offset (0 0 0)
Quat (1 0 0 0)
Mass 2000000
Albedo 0.1
Exposure 3
Color (1 1 1)MainEngines 30
RetroEngines 0
HoverEngines 0
CorrEngines 0.5
TurnEngines 0.002
WarpBoostLog 0
Hyperdrive false
Aerodynamics false
Module "Cobra Destroyer" { "40k/CobraDestroyer/CobraDestroyer.cfg" (-1 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 -1 0 5 15 0 1) }

According to the guide I don't have to create the cfg as Space Engine generates that for me the first time I build, or did I misread?

You are correct. Check also if your .obj file is right, triangulation of faces is important:

This is what I used with Blender:

Excuse me, how can we set or edit planets'orbits in SE so that they can move around their own equators? For example, the northern hemisphere is always day, the southern hemisphere is always night. How can we do that?

The 'Obliquity' must be 90°, 'EqAscendNode' -90° so that the planet with the north pole points to the sun.
The 'Precession' must be the same as the orbital 'Period', in this case one year, but negative.

Everybody, somebody knows how to change the direction of the comet tail? For example, how to add a comet tail to a planet and make the comet tail perpendicular to the planet?

I do not think that's possible.
In principle, it is the sun's radiation pressure that directs a comet tail away from the sun.
Planets have no radiation pressure.
Maybe it would be possible, if you change the 'comet_tail' shader.
But I do not know that.

Everybody.how can we place the Arctic horizontally? For example, in the picture below, how can we place the map of the Arctic jet horizontally after reversing it, so that the position of the jet gas is horizontally to the right?

Try these parameters for the planet.
    // Important !
    RotationPeriod  24
    Obliquity       90
    EqAscendNode    45
    Precession      -11.8622

Of course, this only works in an orbit around Jupiter.
