are the links working
i tried the frlg tilesets but yeah i've gone nowhere :((
i'm new here hoping for a response thanks :))
It's quite possible that some of the links are out of date. I tried the FRLG tileset link, and it takes me to a thread from 2008, so the link might not be working anymore.

Though, Essentials comes with extensive FRLG tilesets already, so you can use those, I would imagine.
