Description: This is a repost of 544: Electron Density Puzzle 8b. The difference this time is that you're rewarded for fitting the density more. You're starting with an extended chain again, but you can load in your solutoins from 8b. Try to fit the protein into the density cloud to gain points, but remember that since this is real world data, sometimes you'll get more points for ignoring the density in certain areas.

align to density doesnt work well

as the align tool does not work, it is difficult to be reward for fitting.
I lose points if I align
before align

Same there.

Align to ED always make it (score) worse. Refined alignment too.

Thanks for reporting this again. We are aware of the issue. It has to do with aligning multiple chains - Foldit aligns each of them individually, trying to maximize the density fit. However, this changes the interface between the chains, resulting in a score decrease. We're considering making them align 'together'.
