Question Is map stealing still a thing?

Been away from sa-mp for a while, that's all.

probably

Not sure if it still works but a way to combat it is by storing your maps in an array, creating the objects at 0.0, 0.0, 0.0 and then moving them to the proper positions.

Can you give me an example on how to do that, if you don't mind?

AFAIK moving objects after creating them does not prevent people from stealing them and it will only complicate things for you. I'm unsure if there is a way to actually prevent map ripping.

I suggest not worrying about it.

There's no way to prevent it.

Think about it, in order for a client to have objects created on their game, they need to receive the data.

Treat maps like images on a website. Sooner or later, someone will steal them. All you can do is provide your players enough value to come to your server apart from the map edits. Someone may steal your work but if you do a good job, they won't steal your players - and in the end, your users are your most important asset!

Can server be blacklisted for map stealing? I mean... there should be a way to punish them...

If you are that concerned about mapping being stolen in SA:MP, I worry about you tbh.
