In DK the games are just pretty cheap even if I buy on release

Iberia was something like ~135 DKK at relase date
To compare: Wonder Woman 1984 UHD: 300 DKK
Big Mac Menu 70 - 80 DKK
T-bone Steak for home cooking: 300 - 350 gr is 120 DKK

In my third world country the launch prices of ATS maps are very similar to those in Denmark xD (that's the only thing they are alike lol) they are the same as 2 big macs ($26.500 cop) = $6.8 USD

Yes, other times they had offered discounts after as much or even less time from the release of the DLC that the time passed since the release of Iberia.

Although we had to go way back in time and with a way much smaller SCS as a company to see them not releasing a map DLC for ETS2 in one year. In other words, not releasing in a whole year what it is their absolutely main source of annual income. That has a cost for the company, a HUGE cost for sure; that they will have to recover somehow.
I understand that, but majority of players already bought it, so regular and full income passed. Now only those who hesitate or are undecided will buy it in the future (or not buy it). Let's say, 20% discount would encourage me to buy Iberia now. Can I wait and play another months without it? Sure I can.

How about in the mean time we ask AMD to support SCS games with FSR, they have this survey that we fill our 3 favorites games for them to contact the developers

"What are your three favorite PC games that you’d like to see support AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution? Let us know, as AMD is looking for feedback on the top titles to potentially add FSR to."

There's some topics about that in the wishlist sub-forum, @Tarso.

@bumbumek we can't do nothing but speculate how many people purchased Iberia DLC (we both will agre on a lot of people, for sure; but only SCS know if enough and/or the expected amount). On the other hand, if it's still selling at a good rate, there's no reason to discount it (have you ever see a company to do discounts on a best seller?). Not to mention that it appeared as the same price than recent years other DLCs despite:
A- Having A LOT more content in road extension.
B- The inflation that makes every year the same price to be cheaper.

You will have to wait because they already are selling it at a way more adjusted price than previous DLC.

I see some are mentioning Steam Summer sale but haven't seen anyone mention the sale price drops seen in this sale so I will.

All of this is based on USD.

ETS2 hasn't seen any price drops this time around.

ATS on the other hand had a number of DLCs drop in sale price:
States:
Utah has dropped from 30% off to 50% off and now costs $5.99 which is the same Washington costs.
Idaho has dropped from 10% off to 33% off and now costs $8.03.
Colorado dropped form 10% off to 25% off and now costs $8.99.

Cargo:
Forest Machinery has dropped from 30% off to 50% off and now costs $2.49
Note: with he drop in Forest Machinery, the Exceptional Cargo Bundle is now $3.82 if you really want to get all cargo packs and save some money:
https://store.steampowered.com/bundle/9 ... go_Bundle/

Accessories:
Cabin Accessories has dropped from 10% off to 25% off and now costs $2.99
Goodyear Tires Pack wasn't on sale before but is now 10% off and now costs $2.69.

It does seem that SCS or Steam/Valve changed things with newer DLCs, because previously they would go 10% then 30% then 50% then 70% off, with it taking 3 months to go to 10% off, 6 to go to 30% off, a year to go to 50% off, and 2 years or so to go to 70% off for map DLCs (cargo, tuning, accessories and paint jobs apparently have a different price drop routine). So Iberia not having a sale yet doesn't surprise me because it has been out less than 3 months. The map DLC that did surprise me was Idaho which stayed at 10% off until this saleNow its 33% off, and Colorado is 25% off. I don't remember seeing 33 and 25 percent off rates for SCS map DLCs. If they changed the rate of sale discount rates then it may be that the newer DLCs will get discounts differently than in the past or more slowly.

This may be true short-term, but what happens long-term?

If SCS establishes that DLCs drop in price quickly, it might lead to an increase in people waiting for price drops for future DLCs. (This isn't speculation, either: I have actively done this for ETS2 DLCs before.) This doesn't really work to their benefit: someone who waits for a price drop is inherently paying less, and is also more likely to forget about the purchase and either end up buying it even later or passing on it altogether. This isn't really a trend you want to incentivize people towards, and the maps that are already discounted provide both games with a more-than-sufficient base map to get started with.

I'd personally have probably tossed out a pity "technically a discount" 10% or something, but eh.

even the 10% shouldnt be done but at the end it is SCS decision what will be discounted and what not, i just saw NieR Replicant™ ver.1.22474487139... discounted 25% and the game is only 2 month old, but with Square Enix behind it as publishers and the "hype" about it, it also sold 10x if not even 100x more then Iberia i bet :rofl:

Publishers tend to do most of their full price sales in the first two weeks of release. It might be different for niche DLC though, and that's perhaps why SCS have elected not to discount Iberia just yet.
