[phenixbb] R-factor expectations when translational pseudo symmetry is present

Dear PhenixBB,

We have a crystal form that xtriage flags as having strong translational pseudo symmetry (Patterson peak 57% the height of the origin peak, p-value = 3E-5).

The space group is P21212. We can solve the structure with MR and refine to R=0.233 and R-free =0.276 at 2.25 Angstrom resolution. The maps look very good, but do not suggest major additional modeling that could be done to improve the structure and lower the R-factors. I know that one expects the R-factors from refinement to be higher when TPS is present, but my question is how high is too high?  Has anyone done a study that shows the expectations for R-factors when TPS is present?
