v1.4 was released last week to go with the new GearSwitcher mod, it has a little button to open/close just the diplo station bank of buttons in GearSwitcher.
Now Heyu has given me a great idea for small addition to MiniCards - buttons for /citystatus and /parleyassess.

my macro is actually
For the /parleyassess I'm wondering how it would work in practice. What do most people do?
Do you run around with the strategy deck open when parleying? I don't tend to leave it open. So adding a button for this to the deck may not work so well? The process becomes:
Run to NPC => open deck => hit button to open parleys.
As opposed to:
Run to NPC => hail to see parleys (but scroll through other options first)
Maybe if repeating multiple parleys on one NPC, which is what Heyu is describing. Then if you're not running around you'd leave the deck open.
Or... another radical suggestion would be to chain these commands to the button that opens the strategy window. Then if you're standing by an NPC when you hit it, it'll open the deck and the NPC parley options. Of course it might get annoying if the target range is too great and you just want to open the deck for some other reason?
I think I'll need to play around with some of these ideas to see how they work in practice.
For /citystatus, that would be very easy to do but I still haven't given up on my hopes of making a UI window to report the city levers nicely.
