In the village shoppe you can also buy the treasure map and a crude shovel to start the treasure hunting! Equip the shovel and click on your first treasure map and read it, from there follow the instructions (not going to spoil where I found the treasure or what it contained). For this we will also make a guide.

Depending on whom you align with, you can have a pet parrot or falcon on your arm to attack people. OK, these birds can do more than that, but it is fun to send your avian friend toward an unsuspecting noble to harass him or her–just a little bit. Falcons can also be directed to go off into the wild and hunt for you. In our case, it brought back a dead rat. We’re told that parrots can bring back other treasures and trinkets, and because it doesn’t cost you anything, you might as well put these birds to work.

Pirates and Nobles is much more likely to keep the latest and most RPG-ish installment of the aging Sims family looking fresh and young for just a bit longer (or at least, so EA hopes). In addition to the usual raft of new objects, furniture, outfits and interactions that arrive with any Sims expansion (including fetching medieval-, pirate- and noble-style makeup, which the game had lacked till now), Pirates and Nobles adds a new quest storyline featuring two rival factions (guess what they’re called), and a pair of star-crossed lovers, each hailing from the wrong side of the tracks moat docks …you know what I mean.

That hasn’t stopped EA from working on an expansion for the game, however. The Pirates and Nobles pack is due out next month, and brings with it a selection of new quests, a new Kingdom Ambition and a new background plotline based on conflict between the Pirates of Aarbyville and the Nobles of Tredony. The expansion also features a new treasure hunting game mechanic, allowing players to find new items with which to equip their Hero Sims, and the ability for Sims to have pets in the form of birds such as falcons and parrots.

Something that has also been added to the expansion is the addition of little flying birds. The pirates will have the option to use parrots to help them out on their quests, whereas the nobles will have falcons to help them find treasure and solve puzzles. Of course, you will also be able to have cages for them to live in and at the moment there is no confirmation that they will be able to say, “Polly want a cracker.” Hopefully, it will not be confirmed since there is no way to translate anything into Simlish.
