Downloaded it but haven't had a chance to install yet. The fix list on their forum is huge. Good on them for admitting they released it too soon when the product wasn't really ready. With the fixes, additions, and improvements, this thing should be really good. I own the T-38A and C310 from them, and those are outstanding.

I downloaded both of the F-15E.zip files to try (linked from the buy button on the site and your link above (one has "MilViz" and the other has "Milviz" in the filename..."V" vs "v") and both are giving me $50 purchase price.
I'll check with Colin and see what's up!

Seems fair. When it was first released at the lower price was it realeased as an unfinished product/public beta, like the Bay Tower RV7?
Try it. again... and, if you don't like it, again, then you can return it. again.

I can't comment on the RV7 or its state of being...Ours wasn't an unfinished product. It was a product that had limitations due to our coder having left us at the very end of the project. We stated that clearly as well as giving the list of limitations. We supported the product without any hesitation as much as we could... We then lowered the price because we all felt that 50 was too high for a product that had issues. However, we have not only fixed those issues, but added a ton more capability to an already quite capable product. If you don't believe me, I suggest that you try it. In MP or SP. Both are fun...One other thing... it's important to note that these two people got their money back. Without any hesitation or questions being asked. 30 day money back guarantee. Not many offer that...

I don't own the other one, but I know that the Milviz bird has a very realistic flight model and the weapons systems are deep and complex. In my opinion, I think that $50 might be a touch high considering that the Vertical Reality Simulations Superbug is $44.95 USD. I mean no disrespect to Milviz, but I still think that the VRS F-18E has an edge on the Milviz F-15E, but they are both fantastic products. We will see how the market forces respond to the pricing, but I am happy to have purchased the Milviz bird for $39.99, and now feel that I have some very high quality military jets. I own other military jets including versions of the F14, F16, and F22, but those don't come close to the Milviz F15E, Milviz T-38A, VRS F18E, and the Lotus Simulations L-39.

Just want to reiterate that I love your products. I also have the Cessna 310, and I think it provides one of the most convincing feelings of flight of any product for FSX. I am absolutely salivating at the prospect of some Milviz military heavies if you ever make any, especially a C-5.
Two out of four works for me....

Well, the passion you all have for your work comes across in your products, and especially in your commitment to overcome challenges and get it right with the F-15E.
I'm blushing over here... We all work really hard to make them as good as we can... And we hate it even more than clients do when they're not at that.... "level".I and the team thank you...

I'm sorry you feel that we're milking anything but cows. We have fixed the issue(s) you, personally, were complaining about. We put the price where it is because that's what its worth. No milk involved.Consider what it does: full on near realistic systems. Avionics, weapons, radar. Weapons that actually shoot and destroy. Bombs that drop using many other methods than CDIP. Multiple targeting and tracking methods. Missions that are realistic and hard. A full on AI package with airbases and all. New missions coming soon. Air refueling that's realistic.We're not making a C5 anytime soon. We have a lot of other planes in the pipeline already. The only heavy in that list is the C119 Boxcar.

FYI, we also put in three (3) different VC's with varying levels of detail so that you can have better FPS should you need it. These are available by changing the model.cfg file to match.... See in the model.1 directory... These different VC's in no way affect the operation of the jet from the front seat...
