reset_timestep 0 reset_timestep 4000000
Set the timestep counter to the specified value. This command normally comes after the timestep has been set by reading a restart file via the read_restart command, or a previous simulation advanced the timestep.
The create_box command sets the timestep to 0; the read_restart command sets the timestep to the value it had when the restart file was written.
This command cannot be used when any fixes are defined that keep track of elapsed time to perform certain kinds of time-dependent operations. Examples are the fix ave/time, fix ave/grid, and fix ave/surf commands. Thus these fixes should be specified after the timestep has been reset.
Resetting the timestep clears flags for computes that may have calculated some quantity from a previous run. This means these quantity cannot be accessed by a variable in between runs until a new run is performed. See the variable command for more details.
