Overwritten assembly weight in Drop Test Simlation

I am trying to use the drop test module for a design.


I am only interested as to what is happening in a specific corner, so I have simplified my whole assembly to a sensible model of said corner.


Doing so, my simplified model comes up much much lighter than the original, so I have overwritten the weight of my FEA-only assembly to reflect the total weight of the said design.


Will the drop test module successfully assume the updated weight in its calculations? or does it take care only of the mesh volume it sees x density of assigned material in the simulation setup??
