With 8.2 we have only effective change model, which means very strong assumption of equilibrium between ion and media. It is known, that in solid media the relaxation time is very short and ion travel in equilibrium condition, so we can reasonably simulate its energy loss and range. In this model effective ion change is not integer but some mena value depending on media and ion velosity. Your task seems to be different - you express interest to recoil after inelastic interaction, this physics is not well addressed inside Geant4. With 9.0 we decide make small modification: ion is produced fully ionized in hadronic interaction. If the standard process G4ionIonisation is used, than effective charge approach is applied. It is also possible to have another process, which can have different model of ion/media charge exchange. So, if in 8.2 only one model was possible, after 9.0 it is possible to apply different models, which can be developed. What we do not have for the moment is the simulation of slow recoil ion which keeps electrons after elastic or inelastic nuclear interaction. This can be implemented but one needs to have corresponding model. VI
