Re: Using non bonded energy table option

I tried nbtables, it is really well documented here: just remember
not to mix up energy and force equations. There is also an extrabond
option, you can try this, but it might not work on large distances.

I made my pseudo bonds by adding artificial NBFIX entries between pairs of
atoms, you can see an example here

in SI. It worked best for long bonds in my CG model, but implementing this
for a protein will be more problematic. You would have to change one of the
atom types to make sure the pair you are connecting have unique set of
types, otherwise some random part of the protein might be affected. This
will also require updating topology and parameter files, to include new
type with original parameters. You can try this if other methods don't fit
the case.
