Hi I am Retired for 20 years and still have questions…

I found FIRECalc a few days ago and think it is an amazing tool. In trying to use it to evaluate how risky my retirement future is, I have found a somewhat confusing result. Perhaps someone else has used the tool in this way and can explain the results. I used FIRECalc to make projections part way through my planned retirement period (first for a 10 year period and then for a 15 year period and then tried to compare the results at the10 year mark on each set of curves. The results were significantly different…I expected the ten year point on each would be comparable. Any idea on the flaw here?
