OK, so I have searched around I can't really find a concrete answer so what is the best way to deal with a large layout. Mine currently is 6000x6000.
Right now I am using 256x256 tiles to lay the entire background. These consist of about 8 different sprites right now.
Is it better to use less, 512x512 tiles?

A tiled 256x256 image, then placing my other sprites as needed to fill in the background?
