Abstract.Fix integers $r, b$ such that $r \ge 3$ and $b>0$. Here for most integers $d, g$ such that $(r-2)g/(r-1) < d < g+r-b$ we prove the existence of a nodal, smoothable and connected $C\subset \mathbb {P}^r$ with maximal rank such that $\deg (C)=d$, $p_a(C)=g$, $h^1(C,N_C)=0$, $h^0(C,\mathcal {O}_C(1)) = r+1+b$.
