Tilesets from 1.14 are not compatible with 2.0. The text data files (the .tilespec and .spec files) need to be updated.

At are listed a number of tilesets. Most of them have no listed maintainer and have not been updated for 2.0. These tilesets are also found at We currently need help updating these for 2.0 as well as classifying outdated 1.14 tilesets on the downloads page.

Most of the work involved will be in updating existing tilesets. If there's a tileset you like that hasn't been updated...updated it and upload it to the contrib directory and post the update. I put up a quick updating HOWTO at

Also needed is classification of current tilesets as "updated for 2.0" or "for 1.14, outdated". If you're willing to test out all the tilesets with 2.0 and make a list of which work, it should be easy to fix the downloads page.
