Maximums

Is there any information about the maximum size of inputs Serpent is able to handle?

I see that I can only have 10k cells in a single universe.

If I use multiple universes, how large can an input file be? Any restriction on the number of lattices?

What is the error message you get? It may just be check to avoid getting stuck in infinite loop.

In general, defining universes with very large number of cells will lead to slow tracking because the cell search algorithm loops over all cells in the universe when testing the collision point.
