I'm planning giant farm next to my settlement, eight or ten plots size of 9x14 each.

It is located next to my settlement on the world map tile, So I at first thought it will not occur overflow like my the previous attempt. (Like the old attempt to build a field in the same world map tile as the house)

I accessed wiki to look up which crops to farm and I found this :

Due to the limitations of the game, it is advisable to plant large (20x20 or even bigger) fields two or three tiles away from your main settlement. A fence can be built around large farms to prevent foreign traders from triggering the item overflow bug, though this is a lot of work.


What I worried is two thing and I have one extra question,

1) is my farm way too big for the game to handle already?

2) should I relocate my farm farther from my settlement? It's not at same world tile so everything's OK right?

3) Have developers recently increased the amount of resources the game can afford?

1. Not too big as is 9x14=126 tiles, x10 for 1260 possible stacks. BUT! If you have fences, traps shelter, you’re going to get nagged.

2. Yes. The game loads wilderness/zoomed out map and all 8 surrounding tiles. You’re going to hit item/stack limit. You should leave two zoomed out tiles between farm and cabin. So farm is at least 3rd wilderness tile away.

3. I don’t recall seeing that in release notes.

I should move my settlement :( Thanks a lot!
