For that massive a star, you might want to try a larger nuclear

If so, wait for the next time the job does "save photos", then
stop the run (ctrl-C works nicely!)
edit inlist as follows to change the net to one including an alpha
chain to s32
change_net = .true.
new_net_num = 83 ! Basic + o18 + ne22 + alpha_mg24_to_s32

For example, if it last said "save photos/x880", do
When it restarts, it should output info indicating that it has a new
net in place.
