I found a bug whereby entertainment buildings will lose all their entertainment slots for colonists, while tourist slots are kept. The entertainment data in Statistics page will also display a negative number (vacant slots: - xx). This will then cause approval rating to start dropping significantly, as I presume the game is seeing that there isn't any available entertainment.
I play in web browser version from the My Colony site.
A few observations :
- Reloading the game fixes it but only temporarily. After some seemingly random amount of time (sometimes only after a few minutes, sometimes hours), the bug returns.
- Tried reloading an earlier save, about 10-15 play-hours before, and the bug eventually returns after a few hours.
Based on what entertainment buildings I have, this affects most such as pubs, hipster bars, pyramids, parks, green domes, stadium. Surprisingly Arcade Center and Colonimulation Hub don't seem to be affected, but building a few of them didn't seem to improve the approval rating from dropping.
Somebody else on the general chat was also affected similarly as well.
Edit : Arcade Center and Colonimulation Hub are affected as well.

Yes invincible, that is very similar to what I experienced. Sorry didn't notice you have posted similar issue a few months back.
Fingers crossed this will be fixed in upcoming patch 0.9.2, and I will report back here once the patch arrives.
Some workarounds which I have tried. What I found is avoiding to click or build any entertainment buildings at all seem to delay the bug from happening to me for a while, although in one save I got the bug again after another 15 hours or so of playing even trying not to view any entertainment buildings.

Just an update, after patch 0.9.2 the same thing still happens. For anyone who has encountered this issue and found a temporary workaround, please share with us until a bugfix is finally applied.
My last save is pretty much now unplayable, as approval is tanking due to the colonists thinking that I don't have any entertainment in the whole map, with entertainment statistics showing negative -xx number, and no entertainment building shows available slots for guests to come in.

Just an update, the same issue is still happening in 0.9.3. Entertainment slots are still fluctuating wildly from negative number to thousands , sometimes staying at 0 for a while. Meanwhile my actual slots are only a couple hundred slots.

Maybe somebody can send me an offline copy of a map having this problem, to email@example.com
I have never encountered this stuff, especially negative entertainment slots

Thank you for the followup, Bast. I sent offline copy of my game to your email above for your testing, and I apologize for the delay in sending it. Thank you again.
