Hi,

Currently, built-in command-based scorer supports box and cylinder meshes only and we do not support spherical mesh. Did you implement sherical mesh by yourself? Could you please explain a bit more detail?

Generally speaking, adding a parallel scoring world would make a difference in event-by-event or track-by-track behavior of Geant4 physics simulation, as a step is limited by volume boundaries of not only the mass geometry but also mesh volumes, and thus Geant4 consumes more random numbers for physics such as ionization sampling. Of course statistically saying, the results should not be affected.

Makoto
