Some textures are buggy, communications main frame does not display (0.9.8.1). Ignore custom main emis texture.

nothing this. How did it happen?
Texturex should be unpacked from payload_SE_031.zip and located at addons\textures\spacecraft\modules, \payld_mods
Models located at addons\models\spacecraft\modules, \payld_mods

You must copy the .sss file to SpaceEngine\addons\models\spacecraft\

in file .sss must be specified (it is a text file)
Class "Starship"
Pack "SpaceEngine"
Faction "SHW Corp"

Never mind, it works ok in 0.9.8.0. It must be a bug in the beta.

Directory format has not changed, and I'm pretty sure that dds format has not changed either.

I know that. That's exactly what I did before. I also tried following instruction from the official site, with textures. I'm probably going to solve it by myself eventually. Thank for the help anyway. :)

YES! Circular side segments! An awesome feature I didn't know I needed all along.
There is a minor bug though: If you add a circular section and then move the ship with the < and > keys, it transformographagizes itself into a hexagonal section and clips through stuff.

Some questions:
1.Is it possible to set specific RCS/shunting engine(s) to function as main engine(s) and if so how?
2. Is it possible to set docking ports / points in the editor?

I seem to be running into a problem with my first test ship not showing up in the SE game.
I exported the .sss and edited using Notepad + +
I placed it into the E:\Games\SpaceEngine\addons\models\spacecrafts directory.
I'll include the first paragraph of code in case I'm missing something here (since I don't know what's what, I copy/pasted some of the values in your example in the first post to this thread):

Name    "FirstShip" 
Class   "Planetship"
Pack   "SpaceEngine"
Faction   "Aliens" 
Mass     21860000
MainEngines     1613.906678865508
RetroEngines     0
CorrEngines     0
HoverEngines 0.0
Hyperdrive   true
Aerodynamics false
Length   294.9072
Offset  (0 0 0)
Quat   (1 0 0 0)
Albedo   0.3
Exposure 2
Color   (1 1 1)

Maybe this is the error. The name of the folder is 'spacecraft' - without 's' at the end - not 'spacecrafts'.
The same is true for 'textures\spacecraft'.

That did it! I was sure there was supposed to be an 's' in there... thank you so much! :)

In older SE versions it was 'spacecrafts', with 's' at the end.

I was reading this by accident and I solved my problem that I posted long time ago here. I wasn't touching the spacecraft since then. And I stumbled upon this. It looks like I also had 'spacecrafts' folder. And I was trying everything to make it work when I made spacecraft. Looks like there was only that 's' at the end.
Anyway, thanks JackDole!
