I have a lot of planets that have an approval rate of 50 and. A huge number of it always comes from "population".

What does it mean? Say for example this: What can I do to improve my approval?

I made your image into an actual image. The two in the link looked identical to me. Let me know if that's not okay! – Fluttershy Dec 31 '12 at 19:50
No, it isn't. The second image had a pop-up with infos what's causing the decrease in approval. – NoCanDo Dec 31 '12 at 20:31

There are several ways to improve your approval:

  1. Lower your tax rate. The higher the taxes the lower your approval.
  2. Control your population. Overpopulation leads to worse approval levels.
  3. Build some Entertainment Centers.

The reason your approval is low is due reason #2. 20 billion (and you are really close at 19.75b) is roughly the cutoff point for managing approval. Any more population and its not worth the extra effort to maintain approval.

And yes, that DOES mean that you need to be very careful with upgrading planetary farms, especially ones on boosted tiles. .. – Shadur Jan 1 '13 at 13:03
Yea, I figured out later on about 20 billion was the "cap". Had to destroy all the extra farms that were upgraded by the governor and placed stock-markets instead. Monies, all the monies in de galaxy is moi! – NoCanDo Jan 1 '13 at 20:21
