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.
No more water effects!
Thanks to the lovely and talented cmomoney who slipped me a fixed rig file for these urinals, you will find that the new package no longer will have the water fall effect when the sims "flush". However, the sims will still make the flushing animation.

The Wall Washer (Updated)

I've spent the last few sim sessions redoing Bridgeport because it's just not grungy enough for me. And, while building a night club, I thought of how perfectly realistic it would be if male sims could pee on walls.

Since script modding is waaaaay out of my league, I decided to go for the easier - yet functional - route to achieving what I want. I simply pinched the EA vent mesh and made it function as a urinal.

You simply place the vent on the wall, and male sims will be able to walk up to it and "use" it. The bounding box is set to where you can click anywhere on or under the vent to queue the action.



The only flaw with this "public urinal" is that it still has flushing animations and the water effect will appear after the sim has flushed. I've done all I could to fix the water effect, but it won't stop showing up. The actual flushing animation itself is unavoidable.



Something else to point out is that a sim will not pee if a child is in the area. Not saying that's not how it should be, or anything.

I can make it disappear!



Well technically I can't....But, if you have Buzzler's (latest) Vanishing Script Mod installed, you will have the ability to make the Wall Washer invisible during gameplay. The only downside is that once it becomes invisible, you will no longer be able to "click" the object. However sims will still try to use it if they can. It's just that all the interactions will be come autonomous.



Now your males can take that serene pee in the wilderness, without anyone judging!

Please only download one version of the file! They will conflict!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Make sure you use the one located in the toilet section and not the original one. I did that mistake first =)

I'm loving this =D Now, if only they could have a disgusted/creeped out reaction from those around, it would be real cool (unless they have the inappropriate or slob trait) But either way, it's good fun so thanks!

Am I doing it wrong? I placed it outdoor, and the male is shooing away another female who is fishing nearby before he can pee. I thought they should only shoo children. Do your sims use it with other adults nearby/on the same lot? Or do I have something else that's interfering with it?

Tha vanishing is working great!

This is awesome!
Is their any way you could make a small floor place-able object like it? Just because their are some places where a floating vent looks kind of weird, such as over bushes, and I don't want to make it invisible and therefore unclickable. Maybe make one of the small potted plants act as a urinal? That would also add to Bridgeport grime, with guys peeing in potted plants. Just a thought. Either way love the vent.
