Physics engine and fixed steps

    Hi community,

    My question is: does the exact time of an event matters for the physics engine? Or does it only care about that in which fixed step the event happened?

    For example:
    Fixed timestep: 0.02 sec
    Let's say there is a FixedUpdate at 3.12s and at 3.14s.
    Does it make any difference in physics calculations if the event occurs at 3.121s or at 3.138s?

    It is important for me because of replay feature!
    Thanks in advance!
