New ion species

Hi all,

I am new to SPIS and am trying to simulate a complex plasma. After extensive manual and forum browsing, my understanding is that ion species may be simply typed in by their chemical formulas (taking advantage of Chemical Formula Parser) - is this correct?

I found the parser in the source code and there is exactly ONE post about it on the forums (from 2018) mentioning that hard coded species “will soon disappear” - but there is no mention of this in the manuals.

To give some context, I want to add custom ions like HCNH+, CN- and some charged dust substitute like C60-.


Question resolved, the sim initialization log lists the created particles, their mass and charge and the custom species work!
