So I've been out of the loop for well over half a year, a lot of fun stuff to come back to. Before I continue I just want to say I always appreciate all the hard work that goes into this game.
That said, I can't say I even remotely like the new baby system, I know deporting is an option, but like... I've started a new colony, and before when I played, I could just chill and let resources gather, just enjoy myself. Now it seems like a race against time.
My colonist won't stop having babies, my population is over half children, my people are hating me because of homelessness, so I can't genrate enough political power to declare indipendance so I can even access deportation.
I think the birth rates need a serious tweak. I'm playing on an ice world too, so resource gathering takes a lot of time, so it's not like I can just easily bullrush either.
btw I'm open to advice on how I should handle the above problem if any pro's have thoughts on it. I'm currently trying to crank out banks but I'm starting to stagnate around 50k of the nearly 200k i need.

So I'm going to follow up with this. I just started pushing through and cranking out housing to make room for workers, because as my pop grew my approval started plummeting and people wouldn't work.
The birth rate thing has ruined this game for me. I've been playing off and on for years now, but this went from a chill game I could kind of treat like an idle city builder, to something constantly needing attention and seemingly having to race to keep ahead of the population booms.
This feature has sucked all the fun out of this game for me. Even if I struggle through to get deportation eventually, which feels like an eterninty down the tech tree with this going on, it's just adding an unneccesary level of micromanaging to a game that already had enough of it to begin with.
Again Bast, Love all the work you put into the game and appreciate all your efforts, I'm sure this will get smoothed over eventually, however in it's current state it ruins the game for me. Perhaps you should bring deporting lower down on the tech tree, or just dare I say... scrap this whole concept, it wasn't needed to begin with, or rethink it. At the very least give us the option to control it, people agreeing to come live on a colony in a hostile planet need to agree to certain things before joining, obviously birth control would just be one of those. /rant
