That actually works fine with VMD 1.6. With later VMD versions there is
the color problem that was discussed recently here. I have almost all
that is needed for vector fields in PyMOL as well, I just need to write
the code that creates the low-level OpenGL objects to represent cones
(for the arrow tips). That is the kind of boring task that I am not
likely to do unless I have nothing more interesting to do - so it might
take a while. If you are happy with just cylinders instead of arrows,
it works right now.
