Available Tick by Tick Replay Frequency should be improved

By using the Tick by Tick Replay function, Ticks can only selected to be updated second by second. This will lead to no realistic replay functionality. Because ticks have a millisecond timestamp, therefore multiple ticks are included in one second. To simulate a realtime behaviour in the replay modus, the user has to guess how much updates are necessary to represent a realistic incoming of ticks.Ticks are coming not regularly but in different time fragments, therefore the user will not be able to generate a realistic time flow in Tick by Tick replay modus.
A solution could be to enable to switch to milisecond replay modus. Something like milisecond by milisecond.
For realistic simulation of the orderflow, especially for discretionary traders this feature is an absolute must have.

Steps to reproduce this issue

Just try to replay in tick by tick modus with multiple symbols trying to match a realistic time flow.

Would it be a solution to add the feature to control the speed of chart update in playback? For example if you set number of tick per second to 1000 right now, 100 of ticks will appear at once on chart. The feature i am telling of is to bring those 100 ticks one by one, but within the same 1 second.

Lets think about a symbol which only makes 50 ticks per second. Another is ticking in average 100 ticks per second. How would your suggestion work in that case. Will the one with 50 ticks get filled a 100 tick bar during one second in case I set ticks per second to 100 ?
If it will only bring in all ticks which have took place during that second I think it would be, ok.
In case your suggestion means the following I think it should be ok.
If i can set one update per second means in one second one second gets replayed.
This will lead to 50 ticks replayed during that second for symbol one and 100 ticks replayed during that second for symbol two.
If I set 2 updates per second this will lead to two second of data replayed during one second.
Are those ticks replayed in the same order as they were received originally ?
Was that your suggestion ? If so I would be happy to see that implemented.
