Proposing some brainstorming here.
So character tabs are indeed second level menus, inside the main diplomacy tab. This could be justified for spies, who have their own tab, but I don't really see the logic to also have all the other characters in there, including admirals and generals.
The way I see it, there are two main options: either characters, like spies, are split into the categories they belong to (scientists in research, governors with colonies, admirals with fleets, etc.), or a main character tab is restituted. The first option would certainly be original, but I find it interesting and in the spirit of the current UI design.
Or do you think it doesn't matter too much because it's about acquired habits?
