Dear John,

I was too foccused on the reply and I did not realize it was you and not John Allison. In fact as I was writing I wondered myself why is John Allison answering in this forum :)

So, simple scattering does not produce those discontinuities along the tracks, and despite being more computationally intensive compared to the MSC models, it suits my problem much better.

Best regards,
