Thank you. Ok, I added the residues and atoms to vdwradii.dat with higher
vdw radius as I created my own atoms belonging to the tube. Without
vdwradii.dat containing atoms of my tube 10 000 water molecules were added
(denity app 1000 g/L). Using the vdwradii.dat app 6000 water molecules were
added decreasing density of water obviosuly.
My question: Are distances between water molecules will be affected or just
between my Tube atoms (specified in vdwradii.dat) and water molecules as
the number of water molecules decreased rapidly?
