The player can raise colony reputation by holding an item to give to the town guard and selecting “Give (Item) to (Colony)”. Speaking to colony residents and giving gifts to them will increase reputation slightly, but less than when giving colony gifts to the town guard. Reputation with an outside colony will decrease over time if they are not given gifts or visited often.
If the player moves to another colony, their existing colony's reputation will drop to 0%. If the player creates a custom colony, their previous colony's reputation will only drop to 50%. The player's home colony reputation always stays at 100%. Moving to another colony does not affect the player's friendship level with colony residents.
