I just downloaded the software and it looks great. I use a self written MD
program. I simply need to be able to visualize the atoms as balls and the
velocity vectors of each atom. Which format would you suggest for output
files? The basic layout I was thinking is:

N (number of atoms)

x,y,z,vx,vy,vz,id (these are the position coord., velocity components, and
an integer to describe the atom)


I am working with crystalline atomic systems (not protein structures, etc.).
I was looking at the XYZ file format and this seems to work except I cannot
use any other information about the atoms. How do I name the XYZ files
(perhaps: Thank you very much for your time.
