If you export a planet or a moon, you just have to give it a unique name. The numbers that SpaceEngine uses for planets do not work in scripts. For example, if you have several planets with the same number, SE does not know which planets their moons belong to, if they have any.
You also need to adjust 'ParentBody', and possibly the 'SemiMajorAxis', so that the planet has an acceptable temperature.
If you are exporting a whole system, you have to create a 'StarBarycenter'.

This script belongs in 'addons\catalogs\stars'
In the exported script you set 'MySystem' as 'ParentBody' for the star.
But now comes the problematic - you have to change all names and 'ParentBody' in the script!
I have here an example system that I have exported from SE 0.95 to SE 0.974 RC2. It should also work with SE 0.980.
