    Hello! We're a group of old players that love this schema and we've decided to take another crack at running a server. This time, with a twist. Our gamemode is called Experiment+ and is being actively developed. Our aim is to create, as the name suggests, a better version of the "original" Experiment.

    Though we are using Clockwork and the standard Phase Four schema as a base we are working towards creating a stable, extensive overhaul of the original Experiment we all knew and loved. Numerous significant additions to the standard game are planned and in continuous development. Refer to the patch notes found on this page if you are interested in seeing what's been done!

    We invite you to join us in the beta phase of our project and hope you understand thatall things are subject to change.
    Please Join the steam group and spread the word! Invite all your friends to this steam group who enjoyed this gamemode in the past or you think will enjoy it in order to solidify a playerbase.

    You may want to add some images to your post and also fix your long URL that is connected to your opening paragraph. Also tell people what your gamemode is about, such as its plot or setting. Maybe even include some information on how your community is run and what its policies are.

    Right now the post seems more about the technicalities of your gamemode rather than the community as a whole.

    Lack of images aside, this sounds amazing. Looks like you're taking Experiment to its roots, I might just hop on.
