This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Description
It's about time we had urinals in the game, right? Right! Well, thanks to UntraditionalNERD, I am now able to offer one to you today.
Near the start of 2015, UntraditionalNERD converted a urinal for TS4 and made it so that only male Sims could use it standing up. The issue was that Sims still required privacy to use it, it still got dirty and Sims still automatically flushed after using it which meant they stuck their hands through the wall.
I got permission to continue working on the object and release it as a collaboration.



Info
First of all, the basics.
The urinal can be found for a cost of 350 simoleons under the Toilets section of the catalogue on Residential Lots as well as the Community Objects section on Community Lots.
It comes in four colour options; white, beige, grey, black.
It can only be used by Sims who are able to pee standing up and are aged Child to Elder. Female Sims who cannot pee standing up will have no pie menu option and cannot autonomously use the item.

Now onto the more technical bits.
The urinal has been given custom tuning and a new custom pee interaction to remove the need for privacy when Sims use it.
The urinal will not become dirty through use, cannot break, cannot be upgraded, and cannot be flushed. These options have been removed mostly because there simply aren't animations for Sims to repair or clean a urinal and flushing it requires Sims to smash their hands through walls. As it is designed for Community Lot use, this also means you don't have to worry about it breaking on your Sims and spewing water puddles everywhere.
I have also lowered the amount of hygiene that is lost when peeing from 0.25 to 0.10.

Notes
To place the urinals as close together as in the screenshot showing off the designs, you will need to activate moveobjects.
Sims who are set so that they cannot pee standing up may route to the urinal when their bladder motive is low if there are no other toilets available on the Lot, but they will not attempt to use it.

A slight update to bring the code closer inline with official EA code and add in Eco Lifestyle recylcing data.
TwistedMexi's Better Exceptions scanner may flag this as a possibly outdated mod when you patch your game or run a B.E. patch scan but there is nothing to worry about. Everything appears to function as intended from my testing.

A small update to remove the ability for Sims without the Materialistic trait to Admire New Possession on the urinal.

25-Nov-2018
After all this time I have FINALLY got the coding updated so that Sims will now autonomously wash their hands after using the urinal. The only exceptions to this are Sims with the Slob trait or the Bad Manners learned trait from Parenthood who will still not wash their hands on their own. This is by design. (I've also enabled the ability for ghost pets to haunt the urinal along with ghost Sims.)
Please redownload and allow the new file to overwrite the old one.

The description says only males can use it, but with the gender update, shouldn't it just be enabled for any sims who can pee standing up? Unless it's already like that and I'm just misreading it.

Thank u for doing this. I think this one is more logical than JulieJs '. But why an urinal cannot be flushed? Thats no reason. Cause an urinal still needs flushing to keep clean and avoid smelling.

It's better female can't use it! No, I mean for a normal man, who wants to see a female standing beside him and using the urinal with him together... thats susks!

Does this object work for any sim that can pee standing up or just male sims who can pee standing up?

So, you've limited it to males instead of all Sims who can pee standing up?

Hypocrisy is only okay if I do it.

I'm so glad to see these, the male gender has had to leave the seat up far too long!

To everyone asking about the ability for females to use this urinal: Wow! Sorry for the misunderstanding about female use when they are created to be allowed to pee standing up. This should NOT stop female Sims from using it IF they have been set in CAS to be able to pee standing up.
All I did was remove the option for sitting down, so if your particular Sims can pee standing up then they should be able to use this also. I do not play my game with any female Sims set to pee standing up and so it did not occur to me to mention this. I apologise if this makes me seem insensitive.
I'll update the first post with this info to prevent any further confusion/offense.

@parkjoonho I did say in the description that flushing was removed because Sims would stick their hands through the wall. It won't get dirty though because I set the cleanliness decrease after each use to zero. If it IS getting dirty in your game then I will have to take a look at why that is happening.

Thanks for making this. Those who can stand while urinating, using natural or artificial equipment, thank you.
