    I'm trying to make a mod that adds a race and some structures. Tiled works perfectly when I try to edit Starbound's structures, but when I try to edit an example map I downloaded, it shows an error message saying "Tile used but no tilesets specified". Does anybody know how to fix this?

    Its all about the pathing used in the JSON file it believe. You find this at the bottom of your JSON files

    Code:
    "tilesets":[
            {
             "firstgid":1,
             "source":"..\/tilesets\/packed\/materials.json"
            },
            {
             "firstgid":191,
             "source":"..\/tilesets\/packed\/supports.json"
            },
            {
             "firstgid":227,
             "source":"..\/tilesets\/packed\/miscellaneous.json"
            },
            {
             "firstgid":246,
             "source":"..\/tilesets\/packed\/liquids.json"
            }],
    Now, depending upon where your JSON file is located, I think your "source" has to point differently. What I find easiest, is to open blankTemplate.json from the vanilla assets, change the dimensions, add tilesets, make my dungeon... then Save As and save it to where my dungeon file will be located. I never have a problem this way. I also had issues using downloaded templates, and that was my issue was the tilesets looked more like this.....
    "source":"\/..\/..\/..\/..\/..\/..\/..\/tilesets\/packed\/miscellaneous.json"
