Great add-on!
This is pretty realistic in terms of planetary conditions and the way orbits are set up. I have come across many lame add-ons where numerous large moons are crowded too close to each other or many planets have elliptical, crossing orbits.
I was troubled by Jotunheim's lack of atmosphere though.

Actually there could be worlds like Hel
scientist say. It's not that Hel is volcanic, its that the temp. is so high that some material on the planet's surface has melted. In fact Hel may not be volcanic at ALL

For something fictitius, or however that word is spelled :), this solar system is awfully realistic. Great job out there. The only part that isn't completely real is probably Hel, because of how volcanic it is. And also the fact that it's not 26,000 kilometers or something away from the sun. But it does resemble the primative Earth, which is really cool.

An excellent Solar system, of the few I have(Ran, this, ours, Mu Ara, and Proxima), this is the second best. Ran is the first best, only because it has a very complicated sceme, such as different textures at different time periods. I especially like the planet Hel, because of the name and the way it is textured. My friends say this is the solar system of some group of gods...
