LCIO only knows about its base types and can't load back extended classes with extra information (e.g. class variables).

This is a reason to use the "generic object" functionality rather than a custom class. Or we can request a new addition to the IO format but we have not been good about this.

You can however still get at those objects from Cluster.class using get().  They won't have any of the extra information.

I guess you need to talk to the author of the custom cluster class to see what can be done about this,

Since the input file was spaced heavily, I know that all clusters and FADC hits that occur in the empty events between those containing raw calorimeter hits came from the last event which has the raw calorimeter hits. To both reduce the file size and make analyzing them easier, I wrote a script that goes through and grabs the FADC hits and clusters and adds them to the source event. However, I found that the method

I have examined the input file in JAS3 and there is in fact a collection with the given name (String COLLECTION_CLUSTERS = "EcalClusters") containing clusters in several events. Additionally, these clusters are created with an unmodified version of the GTP clusterer driver which Sho and I wrote, so I know that they are output as class HPSEcalCluster.

This is supported by the fact that the trigger driver, if added to the reconstruction chain, does not have any errors despite explicitly calling HPSEcalCluster methods like getSeedHit() that do not exist in SIOCluster. The script, however, uses the saved output rather than LCSim's internal memory so it gets the reduced version.

I can't find the driver in the source files anywhere, so I assume it is part of the LCSim project that is presumably pulled in (precompiled?) by Maven, so I can't just change the driver.
