a Tick is one game cycle or loop. It will be faster on fast machines and slower on slower machines. The only loop that conforms to a time is the Timer() funtion. ie:

funtion beginplay()
{
settimer(1.0,true);
}

funtion timer()
{
Do something here...
}


This timer function here will loop every 1.0 second. You can change the time in the settimer statement to change the delay.
