[Chimera-users] Max 100 residues for local bug?

Hi DB,
I believe that is an error message that you may have chosen the wrong model for the ligand.  Since the ligand is generally a small molecule, not another protein, we put this block in because many people were choosing the same model as both the ligand and receptor by mistake and wasting the computational resources.  Whether you were using Autodock Vina locally or not makes no difference to the Chimera tool, it still has the same error checking.

If you want to avoid these checks in the Chimera tool, you should just use your local Autodock Vina program directly (not through the Chimera tool).
I hope this helps,
