How is the engine different than glest?

Well, it supports up to 8 players now...particles for units and tilesets, a masterserver, multiplayer is much more stable (before cross platform wouldn't work), mod download center, map preview, two more CPU modes (Easy and mega)and you can customize their "hardness" too, faction preview, loading screens, observer mode, better selecting, AI and pathfinder is improved, and a lot of other cool stuff. For a better list check the wiki comparison page, but even that list lists only the basic changes. Glest.wikia.com
You'll have to try megaglest yourself to find out :)

Sounds great. So is this a split from regular glest?

Well it is/was actually a fork, so kinda. MegaGlest is going to be merged with Glest Advanced Engine, sometime later though. We'll need a lot of help, since we only have a few developers (around 5ish) and a few testers. So spread the word!
