Read in your own generated files

Applying your own generated ICs is possible through TYCHO's native file format, which is explained in detail in the chapter about supported filetypes. If you want to start with self-generated ICs or with files from another TYCHO simulation, you have to specify the appropriate files including the paths and the appropriate switches in the Parameterfile. The switch dealing with the initial velocity file presence #Initial velocity field file present [1] or not [0] allows you to choose if TYCHO reads in the given velocity ICs or ignores them. In case you want to ignore them you still have to give a dummy filename for the initial velocities. The IC read-in routine will extract the simulation time, the resolution and the counter from the given files, therefore you can basically restart TYCHO from every output fileset written in TYCHO's native fileformat.
