Hi Friends, some words to you all 12.11.2016

First of all, we are reaching 100.000 pieces maybe this year, this is amazing. Thank you all for your great work and let's bring this forward.

This whole project started just for fun and I spent a lot of my spare time on it. I want to bring this forward and add new spots, features etc. and this is only possible if I have fun. I also have to ensure that there is a minimum amount of manners. Sometimes this forces me to an action which I don't like, and I hate censorship, but sometimes I need to do this. Usually my only weapon is to warn a user or if that does not help to suspend him for few days. If this happens to you and you are feeling that this is a mistake, you can send me an email and discuss the issue in private, I'm always open to talk. 

 

Shared group accounts

In the last week some stuff happend here and I just want you all to know what exactly happend because some rumor is going on. I banned the collabo account because I have one big problem with shared accounts. People can use it anonymous and it is hard to follow who is acting and commenting there. For me it's is not possible to reach all members if I want to talk to them because I have only the email of the creator of the account.

For the future here are some rules for all shared acounts:

  • Every member acts in the name of the group
  • If anyone of the group does shit all other members are affected and the account could be suspended
  • Don't write any comments with the group accounts, please use your real user accounts instead
  • If the account is suspended then there is a reason, please talk to me in private of you have questions

 

Voting system

The last update of the voting system is 2 years ago, back in the days it was a great improvement but now we have battles, more and more users and the conditions changed. For new users it's nearly impossible to reach into the fame kings because of long term users, and there is too less competition and change. My plan is to rethink the whole voting system because I think change is always good and can break old structures.

I have already a lot of really nice ideas and input from some users. If you have thoughts please send me an email to [email protected] 

Many of you don't like the current voting system. That is fine and you can always express your criticism if you have something in mind, I'm always open for improvements and happy if you let me know. But I don't want to read again and again and again the same bullshit like "sucking &%$§ for votes" and other blaaa blaaa. The voting system is currently like it is, please accept this.

 

New Spots

New spots are comming. YEAH. I have a lot of new videos and photos from New York and I hope I find time soon to create new spots from that. As a goodie and preview I have a brand new spot for you all - the Hudson Train Yard in New York.

 

More realism

A big thanks to Franky because he told me to tune the spot backgrounds somehow to achieve a more realistic look with shadow and light effects on top of the drawing. After some try and error I'm happy to show you this. To me it looks incredible if you compare it to like it was before. These two spots use this new technique: 

  • Hudson Train Yard
  • Hamburg Underground

I'm not sure about the intensity of the effect, please let me know here in the comments what you think. All new spots will use this by default. The old ones I have to update later on. If you want to compare the difference you can try this: open a unpublished piece (then you see the original version), in another browser tab start to edit the piece. 

 

That's all. I wish you a happy bombing.

Yeah, we have a "add-to-battle" button now. This is for all the app users to allow them to easily add their pieces to the current battle. In your blackbook you will see a small battle icon next to your new pieces (but only if you not already got 2 pieces in the battle ).

Your suggestions

Also we need your help for new topics for the battles. Please leave your comment if you have an idea for a battle. It can we a word, a subject or anything else which makes sense.

New spots

We would like to add more spots but we need your help to do this. The material you find in the internet is not usable, the only way is to record video by yourself. So if you want to see trains of your country here you need to help us. Sounds easy but it is harder than it seems to create good footage which we can use here. A detailed HOW-TO you can find here:  http://graffiti-unlimited.com/posts/6 lease read this carefully to not make the same mistakes like we did ;)

 

Have fun and happy bombing

Create bombing
Many users mentioned problems while saving the bombings. Really bad if you loose minutes or hours of work only because of a network error/delay. That's why you can save your bombing multiple times now. Untill you publish it it will be invisible to other users. When you are finished you have to save and publish.

APP USERS
To use the new "save" and "save and publish" feature you have to update your app.

Fame kings order changed 22.04.2014

Who is the best here? This question is everything except easy but at the end the database have to decide somehow and we need a formula. The old system was better than the one before but had big disadvantages as well. For example if you bomb 5 new trains than your fame is getting down because the the new bombings have no "likes". But actually we want you to bomb as much as possible.

From now only the number of "bombing-of-the-day" (botd) and "bombing-of-the-week" (botw) counts.

This formula is used:
Fame = BOTD + BOTW * 5

Comments are welcome.

Hey friends, We did a lot of changes and hope you will like it. First of all. the biggest change is the registration. New users need now a valid email and a email confirmation. Some guys here voted for themselfs with a lot of fake accounts, from now it's not that easy anymore. In the next days we will look over all ratings. So to all fake guys:

If we see strange votings we DELETE ALL your ratings.

Please stay fair!

But we have another new announcement - we have now 4 NEW Spots.

- Berlin Separation Wall
- Streetart Wall in Berlin
- Video Wall
- Berghain Club Door

All these spots are no real videos but we want to give you new stuff to paint on. Also it's much more eays for us to add new spots like this. So if you have ideas what you like to bomb in future please help us.

And at the end:

BIG BIG BIG respect for you all. We think it's incredible what some of you create here. Two days ago we had the 20000. bombing, thank you for that.

We would like to add more Trains 01.03.2013

We would like to add more spots and trains but we have no good material to do that. That's why we need your help if you want to see more trains here. We recorded all videos on this site by ourself, exept the New York videos. And i think you can see the quality difference. We searched on youtube for more material but all stuff there doesn't fits to our requirements.

So if you like to help us and you want to record some videos here are some detailed information how to record good videos and where you can find good filming spots.

for a new train we need:
  • minimum 3 different videos
  • in each video one wagon should be complete visible for 2-6 sec
  • one big photo of one wagon in full size ( 1920px*1080px or bigger) in 90 degrees angle (that iss the photo to paint on)
video requirements:
  • HD resolution (1920*1090) , half HD (1280*720) only if you got no other possibilities
  • film with a tripod, videos filmed by hand are to unstable in most cases. if you don't have a tripod put your camera on a stone or a railing, this is really important.
  • one wagon should always be complete visible and as big as possible - very important! -> no cut on left or right side of the wagon
  • always choose the same train(same line, same type, same color) AND the same wagon (always the second or always the last) when filming
  • don't move the camera with the wagon (if the video is in HD we can crop the video later and move the cam in aftereffects)
  • THE wagon should start completely visible on one side of the video and move in 3-6s to the other side, choose your zoom carefully that is fits to that.
  • nothing between camera and train (no obstacles, no trees, no gras, no lamps, no houses, no cars) , nothing means really nothing ;)
  • camera position should be as far as possible from the train rails (50-100m), the view angle to the rails should be near to 90 degrees
where to find good spots to film:
  • the best looking movies and the less problems with bad obstacles you get if you film the trains from top
  • try to find a house or bridge where your position is higher then the train
  • on bridges it is easy to use the railing as a tripod
  • try to search nice spots inside a city and with good looking background, for example if you are in paris try to have the Eifel Tower behind the train so that you can see where the video is from
  • a good filming spot is a bridge on the main rails near the main train station, you got trains every 1-2 min

We made a small pdf for better understanding:
How To PDF

Yeah, that's a lot of information, but you should follow all instructions. We made many mistakes in the beginning and want to prevent you from hours of wasted time ;)

Thank you in advance

New Features 28.12.2012

We made some changes and improvements. First we got a new train: the New York Subway. This train is a must have and now we got it.

We've got a lot of nice bombings, but sometimes older ones getting out of view. Another point is we missed the element of a battle. That's why we got two new categories now: "Best of the day" and "Best of the week". Here you can see a gallery with the best bombings from a day or a week. That means you have a battle on each day now. Who is the best?

cheers and happy new year

Hey Dudes 29.11.2012

In the last days we made some website improvements, here are some of them:

  • A new news section, where you can also make comments.
  • Posibility to navigate to the next bombing directly from the detail page without going back to the gallery.
  • A new regio trainpad, the old one was really crappy.
  • In the videos now it´s shown the writers name and the rate score.
  • Turning off the sound, it stays like that even if you reload the page.
  • New videos in the blackbook. Now it´s possible to watch a movie of the current page or a movie with your best 40 trains.

Our next plan is to invite some more writers ( would be nice if you can help us ) and maybe as a holiday present there are coming new train videos ;).

We would like to hear some feedback from you in the comments.
