Rep is determined by your relationship with Urbz, Urbz can go from Level 0 to Level 100. Rep is on the HUD and when it gets to the big Star, the Rep level will go up.
All Sims except the premade Belladonna Cove Sims start from this level.
Below are the levels of reputation: Other unplayables, such as townies or visiting Sims on community lot also gain reputation.
To increase reputation, Sims must do good interactions to other Sims, such as admiring Sims, telling jokes, or giving them a friendly hug.
On the other hand, doing bad interactions will worsen their reputation, such as gossiping, arguing, fighting, and so on.
Reputation is determined by how well Sims interact with other in the society, whether it's a good or bad interaction.
Reputation simology can be found in the personality panel.
When clicking it, the reputation meter will be shown in a bar.
The reputation point is measured in the meter from the thresholds and as monikers, and it ranges from -100 to 100 (Although there is no written number in the game, each line represents 20 points). The middle threshold is the Average Cabbage reputation.
Having a good reputation will give benefits to Sims, while a bad reputation will give penalties. Nearby Sims will react well or poorly to a Sim depending on the Sim's reputation.
Other benefits and penalties include as follows: When a Sim meets a new townie for the first time, there is a 30% chance he/she will be given a secret networking depending on their relationship.
If a Sim interacts well and gains enough daily relationship, he/she might be given a beneficial network.
