Here's some helpful header info regarding sprite sets, graphics, etc. to get you started. Note that in most cases you can actually copy header data from a different level (eg. copy the data from 4-6 if you want to use the water/grass tileset/background, etc), but for those who are feeling ambitious and want to create a unique combination of tilesets/palettes/sprite sets, see below.

Sprite Set Lists, thanks to Blumiere and Yoshis_fan

Here are two lists that show all 127 sprite sets and what sprites are compatible with each set. The second one, made by Yoshis_fan, has some more detail about each sprite at the bottom, but other than that the lists basically show the same thing.

----Layer 3 List-----

Here is a nice spreadsheet created by Yoshis_Fan which documents the layer 3 data in the game.
If anyone is wondering what kind of sprites you can use that doesn't require a sprite set, here's the list that I made.

After the stationary sprite coin, it's just generators, and you can easily tell if you need a sprite set or not.

Oh, didn't realise this thread was open. :P
Is there any backup for the layer 3 list? It looks like it was deleted or something. :/

It seems like Yoshi Fan still has the layer 3 document in his files thankfully: Here
Although I'm not entirely confident that this would or would not be as up to date but it seems to have everything documented either way.
