Sets how PyMOL draws the surface. The default, surface_mode=0 does not include the heteroatoms within the surface; setting it to 1, does include them. See the example images.


# make the above images, or something like them
fetch 2v72
color wheat
color marine, het
zoom het and not resn HOH
as surface, 2v72
# ray 800,600

# default
set surface_mode, 0

# non default
set surface_mode, 1


set surface_mode, int

where int is in the range of 0 to 4.

0 - default mode
1 - force inclusion of HET atoms
