Of course I've been up all night! Not because of caffeine, it was insomnia. I couldn't stop thinking about coffee.

Purple is my favourite colour, being able to play purple makes me feel like this

The back of the CO2 box shows purple as a player colour as do several images within the rules. The captions often refer to the purple player. Very exciting stuff except I have no purple pieces cry

I do have green pieces and judging from the images here that's the case for everyone. I guess there was a last minute decision to swap purple for green with complete disregard to my feelings

I'm sure someone would point out that since the CEPs are purple, a purple player colour could be confusing. Perhaps there is some truth to this but I suspect there wouldn't have been much of a problem. The huge hockey puck sized CEPs are easily distinguished from small player pieces.

I speak to improve upon the cacophony.

Since the CEPs are purple, every player can think of themselves as a purple player!

Simple fix. Buy some paint and go to town. Perhaps get some model paint or you may have some issues and you may think about sanding the pieces a bit, but this should fix your problem.

Yes I might paint some pieces purple in this case. I don't usually go to such lengths but in this case I'm very tempted to.

I was in a similar situation. I play as red so I simply removed the orange pieces and put in red pieces. I also removed the pawns and added meeples for the scientists. That lead to removing the red CEP marker and adding my own custom CEP market marker.
