Default Land Air Sea Warfare v1.1 - RTS Like Total Annihilation



Also check out Land Air Sea Warfare HD for iPad now available!

Apple took their sweet time reviewing the update, its finally online now though! I have taken some screen shots highlighting some of the changes in the update. Over 80 changes total, you can see them all at the bottom of the help file.

New Icon! FYI the badge symbol is used in the game to represent mega units rank user request


New UI with pause button added. When the game is paused you can read the tutorial, issue orders, select and inspect units, queue units at factories, scroll around the map, change groups, and makes selecting and targeting aircraft much easier! user request
Elite units that gain experience levels with more kills and display medals based on level and tech.
Change orders directly on the unit info pane. user request
Touch the credits indicator to immediately move the view to your HQ.


Confirmation dialog for firing ICBM. user request


Option to display health bars when units are attacked. user request


When you destroy units that are still under construction you get 100% of the ore back, if its already built you salvage up to 50% of the ore if the unit wasn't attacked within the last 30 seconds, the amount salvaged is cost * armor / maxarmor. this is so if your HQ is wiped out and you don't have enough ore to build another you can salvage buildings and units to build another HQ


Enabled touch and drag to create many units at once (for power cells, wind turbines, storage tanks, and walls), enable by creating a unit and then touching the[*] button. user request


NOT IN THIS UPDATE This will be in a future update. A preview of the new tactical map, it's a big minimap mode with detailed icons so you can have an immediate overhead view of the whole battle with more details than the minimap can provide. The idea is to be able to fully command units, queue factories, and inspect units map wide at once.

The new icon looks much better, but I would prefer it if the letters said "LASW" instead of "RTS".

I thought about that, but anyone looking at the app will see the title Land Air Sea Warfare next to it, so LASW is a waste, and I wanted to help inform new users that the game is a real RTS and not just a tower defense type game. I also plan on changing the app name on your device from Warfare to LASW in the next update.

Nice patch but I'm not sure new threads for patches are allowed?

A great game, now greater.

I just wish it was orientation-aware. It's awkward to play on the iphone while wearing headphones, or on the iPad withe the Apple stand/cover. A fix for this would be highly appreciated!

Perfect. I wanted to be able to see the full title instead of just "warfare" on my home screen, so changing the app title will help that.

Depends on how big the game/update/discussion is; just look at Pocket God, it has a new thread every update and we close the previos ones.

The new update is awesome but im already getting my butt kicked Doesn't the AI know it's not allowed to attack me before I build my defenses!? Cheater...

I also can't get the fast building for the power cells. Can someone explain how to do it so I don't have to tap and place each one individually?

In the last patch, (didn't try it in the new one yet) I usually built like a square of them then drag selected them then press the fast build button. That would make all of them fast build.

And the tactical map looks nice, maybe make it so you can zoom in on it so you can choose your units more precisely.

K, a couple of things I can't pause the game? And yes I'm hitting the pause button, also how do I make multiple buildings at once? I don't see a * anywhere?

And how do I get the first icon, I got the one that has RTS on it, I wanted the one with the Magne Lase.
