Unfortunately, this is not something PyMOL can do at present, and we were not able to come up with a workaround previously.
In short, the code needs to be modified at a fundamental level, but the cartoon generator in PyMOL is about as bad as it gets: deeply nested code, 1-2 letter variables names, fragile pointers, and almost all of it in one massive ~2,000 line C subroutine.  RepCartoon.c is one of those skeleton demons in the closet that must eventually be challenged but will not be easily defeated...apologies.

Subject: [PyMOL] cyclic structures

This question has appeared a few times in the mailing list yet I could not find any answer (maybe I missed it).


Basically, in cyclic structures there is a discontinuity at the last residue to the first residue when displaying the cartoon representation.  How do we make a cyclic cartoon representation?
