[Mesa-users] Does "opacity_factor" scale radiative and conductive opacities in WD models?

Hello all,

I just have a simple question. We are running the wd_cool_0.6M test and want to scale the opacities, but were wondering if the “opacity_factor” control changes both the conductive and the radiative opacities, or if it just changes one of them.
Additionally, we were wondering when the Blouin 2020 conductive opacities will be included in MESA?
