MOCADI, the Monte-Carlo code for tracking of ions in ion-optical systems with non-Liouvillian elements, has been extended. Accurate atomic and nuclear interactions are taken into account when ions penetrate gaseous and solid matter placed within the ion-optical system. The new features of MOCADI are described in this article with practical examples which demonstrate the new possibilities, such as new event-generators for targets and spontaneous nuclear decay, the option of atomic-charge state fluctuation in matter, loops for multi-turn ion-optical systems and a graphical user interface for easier operating and control of the program. Experiments for investigation of nuclear structure and reactions with ions circulating in a storage ring can now be ideally studied with MOCADI.
