Rearranging your Farm and Town is getting a whole lot easier with Hay Day’s new Edit Mode. Allowing you to save multiple layouts, Edit Mode is all about options. Swap between your own efficient designs, wacky concepts and seasonal specialties.
Found above the Friend icon, Edit Mode is available from Level 25 and up. Here, you can create and save several of your favorite layouts. Ad personal touches by naming each one.
The first slot holds your current farm layout. The other slots are blank canvases that you can use to experiment and arrange all your items and decorations. A second layout will be readily available to use. And extra layout slots can be unlocked with diamonds.
You can edit your current Farm layout in the first slot, create all new Farm layouts in the other slots or copy your current Farm layout to an available slot. This way, you can remove, add and move items without losing your primary arrangement. For example, if you want to keep the Farm’s current look, just Copy and Paste the layout to your second available slot and then tap on “Edit Layout“.
Notice how some buildings are transparent? This is because they cannot be moved.
Edit Mode Options
At the bottom of your screen, you’ll find several buttons. The first two on the left side, are for exiting Edit Mode by either saving a layout or discarding the changes you’ve made. Turning ON “Erase Mode” will store any item you tap on. Leave it OFF if you’d prefer to be more cautious with your edits.
The Storage Box icon allows you to store multiple categorized items at once. For example, if you want to rearrange animals and crops, then basically you can store all field and habitats, all the production machines, trees and bushes and all the decorations. To put items back on your Farm, just tap on the other Storage Box icon.
Paint Brush, is a handy time saving feature, that helps you gracefully lay multiple items. For example, placing fields with one long swipe.
The red notification on the Storage Box indicates that “essential items” still must be placed before you’re able to activate a layout.
If you lose internet connection or exit Hay Day while in Edit Mode, your unfinished layout will be recovered automatically for you to continue where you left off.
Having a new layout saved, just tap “Set As Active“. Layouts with a red exclamation mark “!” cannot be activated as they’re missing essential items like, fields, animals, production machines, threes and bushes. Decorations are not key essentials.
Hay Day Town Edit Mode
The Town also comes with its own Edit Mode and works exactly as shown on the Farm. One thing to note, unlocking more layouts on your Farm will not unlock layout slots in your Town. Slightly different then the Farm Edit Mode, the Town only comes with service buildings and decorations. Therefore, only service buildings and decorations can be stored and placed in the Town area.
To quickly check what each button is for and how Edit Mode works, tap on the Question Mark icon found in the top left of your screen. Here you will find the edit mode basics.
