Hi  gmx-users,                  

     I want to add a MN2+(manganese with 2 positive charge, not bonded ) to the Gromos96 43a1 FF library.
     I modified the following files:
          ffG43a1.atp, ffG43a1nb.itp, ffG43a1nb.rtp          

     I add a line in the ffG43a1.atp:  
          MN2+  54.93800 ;     manganese (charge 2+)  

     Also add a line in ffG43a1nb.itp [ atomtypes ]:  
          MN2+     0.000      0.000     A  0.0004182025  9.4400656e-09     
     And several line in other parts of ffG43a1nb.itp.  

     Add some lines in ffG43a1nb.rtp
      [ MN ]

       [ dihedrals ]
      ;  ai    aj    ak    al   gromos type

     However, I noticed that 2 files, 'atommass.dat' and 'vdwradii.dat' are read during the making of a topology file. Need I add the atom weight and vdw radii into these 2 files?



Yours sincerely,
