[phenixbb] Ligand occupancy and conformational change

The residues of the loops are already assigned with ARESNAME and BRESNAME and it is ok to refine both loops
What I would like to do is then to add the ligand. But in the apo state it clashes with one residue of the loop.
So I thought fixing the occupancy to 0 (zero), for one ALT of the ligand (with apo loop) and having a second ALT with an occupancy <1 (bound loop) to try to prevent atom clashing.
Is it the right strategy ? And how to do it ?
Moreover, it seems to get more complicated as the bound ligand can also exist with at least 2 different alternatives (different orientation of a central indole ring).

> The ligand seems to induce a small conformational change of one loop. However, despite my efforts I did not get any data with a full occupancy for this ligand yet.
> As a result, I have to deal with a loop in apo state (where ligand occupancy = 0) and a loop with a bound ligand (where ligand occupancy <1) and where the ligand is clashing with the modelled loop in the apo state.
