Overlapping/ Stacking Fields on Farm Town
Overlapping is different to Layering. Overlapping fields
is where you see one field on top of another and is visible to yourself
and anyone coming to your farm. It is not advisable to overlap and layer on
the same farm.
Go to the farm you want to work on. Hide trees,buildings, decorations and flowers. Clear your farm of any previous plowing by using the big bulldozer. You do not need fuel to plow so fuel will not be a problem at this stage. I usually then plow just one line down the side
where I want to start my fields, top left corner to bottom left.
It’s up to you whether you use this method if you feel confident enough not to do this then that is up to you. If you have flowers, trees, buildings, decorations in the way see instructions first on how to plow under these things.
Set the farm you are working on as default farm. Now go to the plug icon (top right). Set of 6 icons it’s the 5th one along it should be green. Click on it and disconnect from farm town mainframe. It should now show plug icon with a red background.
Now go to the top right and right click on play and open
farm in new tab or window. Open the tab and you should just see the one
line of plowed fields. Go to the plug icon and disconnect from farm town
Now open another tab as instructed above and you should once
again only see the one line of plowed fields if you are using this
method. Set this farm to disconnect from farm town mainframe as well.
You should have three farms open now. Go back to the
first tab (far left). Plow this first field as you normally would. Now click on
save icon the first icon in the set of six top right of screen. A box will come
up that says “Save pending changes” click the green tick. Now close the tab or window.
Now on 2nd tab, second farm there may be a box that says reconnect to Farm Town mainframe, click on the red X, you should
still only see one line of fields plowed. Each plot has 4 rungs / grooves. You
need to put your next plow aligned to the second rung/groove of the first plot in the line of the plowed fields we are keeping there throughout each

Keep each line of plowing the same level as your 2nd line of plowing.

When you have finished plowing click the save icon which will again save pending changes and then close tab or window.
On 3rd tab, Farm 3 once again you may see the connect to Farm Town main frame box, click the red X. you should only see the line of plowing down the side you originally put there.Now next to the original line of plowing put your first plowed field aligned to the third rung/groove down.

Continue plowing in the same way as you did when aligning to the 3rd

When you have finished plowing DO NOT CLOSE TAB. Save pending changes and then put your farm back online by clicking on the plug icon and clicking on the green tick when the box comes up. Now go to play and click on that and it will reload your farm. Your plowing should look like the example below.
Example of overlapped
You can now plow your own overlapped fields. Slashkey has enabled this because once you couldn’t you had to get someone else to plow for you.
