Adding customisable uniforms to the game would most likely seriously limit the amount of players you can have in a server. If you care about player count, static uniforms are the best way to go.

Then at least add more static uniforms as options. So we can see more variety in the field and also give more regiments a chance to be seen in game.

I'd prefer more nations, more generalized uniforms then add more units and uniforms to those nations

If Napoleonic warfare is anything, its about the uniforms!  ;)

A working comprehensive Uniform customiser would eliminate the need for lots of new units, we could create our own based on basic national uniforms and a muted accurate colour palette.
This feature would set this game apart by miles. I would add that any unit mechanic should not allow anybody to join an officer without the correct uniform.

I'm fine with most of the uniforms as they are, the only ones I really want are the Old Guard and Highlanders, plus winter uniforms.

Are we going to see a British alternative to the French customs service? Perhaps a battalion of the Army of Reserve, the British Volunteer Corps, some fencibles (I understand that the majority of these units were disbanded in 1803 but apparently there were still a few around in 1809) or just normal line infantry?

Edit: nvm, re-read the coast guards and customs dev blog.
