What period? Uniforms changed completely between 1650 and 1805.

 

I think you guys need to choose a historical period and stick with it, making ships of that era at least initially, then when the game kicks off you could run different servers/worlds set in different periods.

 

France didn't have marines as we think of them (British Marines, a corps specifically raised to serve aboard warships) so French warships would have soldiers drafted aboard from whatever regiment was available in port or a nearby garrison, so soldiers can have any line infantry uniform, even red coats if they happen to be Irish or Swiss ;)

 

Netherlands 1753:

Dutch Naval officers uniform 1775:

Spain, 1760:

I came across this while looking for Spanish uniforms. No marines but the re-enactor photos give some great inspiration for sailors, smugglers, pirates and local militia/armed citizens units if you ever decide to do ports 'n' forts:

XVII and XVIII century French Royal Navy UNIFORMS – Equipment – Armament.

+1. This is the ultimate book about french uniforms written by THE expert, Jean Boudriot, architect and naval archaeologist. 100% accurate  :).
