Treasure chest found with "My First Treasure Map: An Amateur's Guide to Treasure Hunting"

Treasure Hunting requires The Sims Medieval: Pirates and Nobles expansion (P&N). Sims can dig for treasure with shovels, piece together or buy maps, receive special items and titles. Birds are great assets and will sometimes bring back map pieces and other treasure items.


Shovels are equipable items required to dig up treasure. They can be bought from the Village Shoppe, crafted by the Blacksmith, found from treasure chests or random events.

Steel Shovel A standard steel shovel, sturdy and heavy. This is a treasure hunter's best friend. 2 - Normal quality Treasure Hunting, Blacksmith crafting
Mithral Shovel.jpg
Mithral Shovel Mithral alloys make this shovel both thinner and lighter than most standard shovels, helping any treasure hunter to dig far faster. 5 - Normal Quality Treasure Hunting
Silver Eye Shovel.jpg
Silver Eye Shovel The greatest and craziest treasure hunter of all time, Blood Captain Silver Eye, commissioned a set of shovels to be made by melting the most valuable find from each of the 300 treasure caches he had unearthed by then. They are rumored to have inherited magical properties from their melted ancestors, and are by far the best shovels ever constructed by man.

It is rumored that before his death, Silver Eye buried each separately, scattered throughout the world, so worthy treasure hunters could find and benefit from them.

Maps are not required to "dig for treasure", but maps do lead to great buried treasure locations!

History tells of two brothers. One decided to become a pirate, the other joined the Guild Consortium. One day they discovered a treasure map in an old chest. Unfortunately, they disagreed about who saw it first, and in the proceding fight they tore it in half. Each took their half, swearing to find the treasure first. Of course, neither were able and the map has remained separated ever since. on path between Judgement Zone and Training Yard (see bottom picture)
