why the box is so large?

Hi, everyone, I used the triclinic box in my simulation. The parameter is as bellow:
0.0 109.26343 xlo xhi
0 64.14413 ylo yhi
0 21.97867 zlo zhi
-36.825 0.0 0.0 xy xz yz

The simulation system is as bellow:

The box is so large. Will it have any influence on the simulation? For example, lost atoms. How can I shrink it?
Thanks very much!
yours sincerely,

​using the change_box command? ​

Thanks very much!

Hi

I have used triclinic box in my simulations before, and the only problem I faced that time was thermal instability. For the same element and potential, box in orthogonal state was stable and became unstable when I changed the geometry (I do not have any explanation for this behavior)

The coments are of little use if no info is provided about the simulation protocol: aiming to model a bulk system? interactions cutoff? system size? what do you mean by unstable?

Hi, Axel, Afshin and Carlos, Thanks very much for your suggestions. The problem was solved by translation all atoms along the X-axis. Best wishes!
