3285 $ - a full wc3 campaign
460$ - Assassins creed 4 + Playstation 4

There are 3 VERY MAJOR things wrong with this comparison.

#1: $3,285 is the budget price for making the "full" campaign of TCO(which is entirely optional I should add).
I can assure you that AC4's budget will be well beyond $460(AC1 & AC2's budget were around $22 million EACH, iirc). $460 is the price which will allow you access to the game(this is a mandatory payment, by the way, unlike the "price" for TCO which will always be free for anyone who has WC3:TFT[$20 total for base and xpansion on the Blizzard store right now]).

#2: $460 will be the total price an INDIVIDUAL person pays to be able to play AC4 on the PS4.
$3,285 would be the accumulated amount of money by several payments from MULTIPLE people. No one person needs to pay the complete amount to open up all the content. For example:
If 100 people donated $33 each, ALL of the additional content would be available to EVERYONE(even those who don't pay).

#3: I've said this before already, but...    It. Is. Optional!!

As unlikely as it already is for a large amount of people to decide to donate, it'll be even less so for those that read the OP which will only hinder the chance of any additional content being added to the mod.
I do think, though, that the cost requirement for many of the features should be dropped quite a bit. It'll be less scary to potential donors if the goals are more easily attainable.

Also, Aero...

Relying on your book to sell is extremely risky, especially if you lack the resources to market it to the public. They won't buy your book if they don't know it exists. I'm hoping you saved some money to put into advertising your book because going by word of mouth alone is a very unreliable way of getting your product out to the public. As a note to anyone who reads this: ALWAYS have a reliable source of income.

I will tell you, Aero, something that a "wise sage" had said before in the event that your book's publicity is struggling: "Advertise like shameless whores." Not literally like a ****, of course. Just market your book to the point that your dignity is hanging by a thread. Hopefully, though, it won't come to that.  :P
