Also, maybe I’m over-interpreting what you said Rabeta, but no one should rely on the NAMD tutorial as an exhaustive resource of what’s available, especially things that aren’t co-developed with NAMD. There are

all-atom: <>
and CG: <>

representations of POPS in their respective force fields.

As NAMD tutorial did not provide mapping and topology files for POPS lipid; according to suggestions from this group, I had modified those two files of POPE at the head position for POPS. But I am getting undesirable potential mean force result after running around 50ns. I am not sure
