Besides being able to start the sequence at any index with play and being able to set a start delay with servertickle, both commands seem to play the sequence of saved RGBs in a loop.
Is there anything else I'm missing or are they both virtually doing the same with only these two parameters being different?
PS. Also what is the maximum position for a saved RGB?

EMPLOYEE1Yes, there are 12 color slots. Some more info along those lines are here:
The "servertickle" function is for when you want to use blink(1) as a kind of dead-man's switch light. It starts playing the color pattern only if you stop using servertickle.
For example, let's say you have a script on your server that runs every 5 seconds checking on things, and one of the things that script does is:
blink1-tool -t 6000 --servertickle 1
then if the script hangs (or the OS crashes) after 6000 milliseconds (6 seconds), the color pattern in blink(1) will start playing.
