I'm using Vivado 15.3 Simulator in order to simulaten a full project. It's very slow, it takes 01:15 minute to simulate 50us.
How can I speed up the simulation?
should i use a third-party simulator? should i purchase a special liscence?

DO you mean to say it takes 1hr : 15 mIn for 50 us of Post PAR simulation?
If your design has a good amount of DSP48, MMCMs or GTH utilization, You can try using unifast simulation models for the same.
Refer page 22 of Logic simulation guide for usage details.

There is no other license provided by Xilinx to speed up the simulation.
Thanks and Regards,

If don't want to monitor any signal on waveform, please run simulation by change the debug level to 'OFF' from simulation setting under elaboration tab.
Also I would like to see what's causing simulator to run slow or is it because of design. Will it be possible for you to share design.

Thanks for the tip.
I mean that it takes 1 minute and 15 seconds to simulate 50us.
I checked for errors and collisions in the log and didn't find any.
