Give Graph view more time to resolve stress

What I am trying to do

I am looking for a way to give the graphical representation more time to move and shift, and in this way reduce the stress so that it really settles to its optimum tension level before it stops moving.

Things I’ve tried

The same desired effect I’m looking for occurs when you repeat the “show orphans” option. Each time, the entire graph moves again and shortens unnecessarily long links.

What I am looking for

Either a file that I can edit to play around with the coding or a plugin that would give me partial control over it

In case anybody stumbles over this in the future:

the Plugin “persistent graph view” also contains the command “run graph simulation” and “stop graph simulation”

Kinda what i looked for.
