But in order to get the complete solvation free energy these
calculations for the van der Waals and cavity terms have to be done.
So does that mean that the solvation free energy calculated by default
without specifying "sa_algorithm=Ace-approximation" is missing these terms?
I thought that the ACE-type approximation is done by default (due to the
manual) when using GBSA.

I think you have to set "sa_algorithm=Ace-approximation" for this calculation to
be done, and thus written.
