In principle this might be possible, but surely is not intended that way. A good method for continue simulations is using the blockfile format to regularly store the necessary particle data (and other parameters) and write the simulation script in two variants: One for the initial setup and one that allows to continue the simulation from the data stored in a block file.

We do not support "checkpointing" in the sense that you can have an automatically created file that contains everything necessary to continue running. One reason is that this would include the necessity to store the full state of the TCL interpreter.
If it is just one afternoon of computation, it is probably easier to re-run the simulation :-). The particle positions can however be extracted from a vtf file, if necessary, but that is manual work.
Cheers and good luck,
