The parameters set in [atomtypes] apply to all LJ interactions computed 
via normal combination rules. The [nonbond_params] directive specifies 
values that override combination rules. If you want to apply a global 
change to C6/C12, then you should change what is in [atomtypes] and 
remove any instance of that particular type from [nonbond_params] unless 
additional off-diagonal terms are required.
