I'm about to dive back into map editing for a forthcoming, ambitious 1.13 based mod and wanted to ask a few questions regarding tilesets used in current builds. Some may know I'm familiar with how tilesets work but wanted to double check where files are in some of the more recent unstable builds as things have changed since 7609.

At the moment I currently have unstable 8730 installed as a base, which will no doubt be updated later if need be. This mod will hopefully be for the latest builds.

What I want to ask is;

Is the unstable build still using data from the JA2set.dat as base? (As in the Vanilla folder BINARY DATA)

I take it the latest tilesset data is using the JA2set.dat.xml (Which is in 'Data-1.13' parent folder)

So just to clarify does the unstable use both these files? Or is the old JA2set.dat just obsolete/legacy?

Also looking at the tileset folders in Data (Vanilla), Data-1.13 and Data-UB all contain the extended tilesets from Unfinished Business (tilesets 50-59)
Is there any reason these tiles are duplicated in all three folders? Especially that Vanilla data folder?

I also see there are further empty tileset slots up to #69 in the externalised JA2set.dat.xml so I take it these slots can be used for new, unique tilesets?

Can further tilesets be added past #69?

If a new tileset is created specifically for this new mod, where can I save that data? Do I overwrite the JA2set.dat.xml in the 'Data-1.13' parent folder? Or can it be stored elsewhere, like when Vengeance used it's own Data-Maps-Tiles folder?

Any help with this would be appreciated, and may prove useful to others in the long run.
