Dear Joseph,

See also the F-90 REDDB project:

On the top of the FF parameters you can always add your own set of FF

R.E.D. Server/R.E.D. IV are outdated!
Please use instead: R.E.D. Server Dev./PyRED at


PyRED generate a whole force field i.e. not only atomic charges.

See the tutorial:
   & in particular the last ones:
where you can provide your own atom types (or correct theses
automatically generated) and mandatory/missing force field parameters...

the mol3 file format is the default file format for FF libraries:
(it is advantageous for molecular fragments)
