Default Are there tools for working overlapped fields?

Are there tools for working overlapped fields?

Yes there are the EX Tools. These tools use the new faster method of harvesting, plowing and planting existing fields called Extent Mode. You must own all the relevant single layer tools up to 16x16 before you can by these tools.

Overlapping fields is still not officially supported by the developers.

However if you do it on your farms or work on other players farms that do overlap fields, these new set of tools will enable a much faster farming, very similar to the experience of using the Tree Shaker 20x20 to harvest up to 400 trees, or when using the Fishing Turbo Boat 20 x 20 to harvest up to 400 overlapped water items in a squared area the size of 5x5 fields.

When selecting the one of the new EX Tools instead of the Eye in the bottom right of the game screen you will see the picture of the tool you have clicked on.

When you click on that icon, you will see a vertical toolbar with 3 buttons.
The one in the top (Highlight) selects the old method of highlighting each individual item.
The one in the middle selects the New Method (Extent) of highlighting only the perimeter of the area where the tool will operate. Instead of highlighting all the fields, this new method will just highlight a fixed squared section of the farm which works faster and with less manual mistakes. When you use this method you will briefly see "Extent mode selected" in white lettering near the top of the game screen.
The bottom button closes the box.

Also, the tool will always operate as if the Eye was closed, meaning, the recently worked items will be hidden once the work on them is completed.

PLEASE NOTE: Using the Ex tools in Highlight mode will make the tool work like the single layer 16x16 tools or larger single layer tools IF you own them.

To use these tools, place all tools into your Storage. That way you can access all your tools from the Yellow Tool box, on any of your farms, without having to move the tool from farm to farm. Once they are in Storage, you can click on the Yellow Toolbox to open it, and then click on the tool you want to use.
NOTE: Farm Cash Tools do not count towards your storage capacity, you can store as many of those as you want.
