(One confusing aspect of this mission is that even though the area has only 3 fields, clicking the "Area Progress" button reveals four. It may be because the software needs to display the same number of puzzles per field. Anyway, the two puzzles in the first field count as being in Field 1 and Field 2, the puzzle in the second field counts as being in Field 3, and the puzzle in the third field counts as being in Field 4.)
