Am curious.
Is this a recreation of the SWARS 3D engine?

If so, can this engine be used for recreating Magic Carpet, Hi-Octane, and many other Bullfrog games?

The most advanced re-creation is within KeeperFX.

And yes, many of the engine-related and utility functions could be used for Magic Carpet or Hi-Octane.
But the rest would still have to be remade for each game. For example - events handling, in-game objects lifecycle, creating a drawlist for rendering - these are different for each game.

Also, whether use of such code would be helpful, depends on the method used when rewriting these games.
