You didn't create the objects, it's not yours.

Then literally everything is illegal.. PAWN was created by someone else, who got it from some other old language..

At least add it in the forum rules next time..

No Script Selling - Selling scripts or linking to sites that allow people to sell scripts is not allowed. Scripts contain content developed by other people, most notably the SA-MP team, for which you do not have redistribution rights, making selling derived works illegal. Hiring a scripter to make an entirely new script is different as you are paying for a service not a product. However, the SA-MP forums accept no responsibility for any deals made to that end.
A map is a script, CreateObject is created by the sa-mp team, CreateDynamicObject is created by Incognito which also uses CreateObject. RemoveBuildingForPlayer is created by the sa-mp team same as CreateVehicle or AddStaticVehicle or even AddStaticVehicleEx. So whatever you make, you still use stuff provided by the sa-mp team.

The problem here is that the sa-mp team do not want their stuff to be sold, like you made an object, you just set the coordinates and object model but the object itself is created by a function that the sa-mp team made, hence you didn't make it all by yourself.

So basically, I code a program in C# which has

Code:
using System;
and I'm not allowed to sell it?

Lmao, the logic.

Every piece of software is illegal then.

If I wanted to buy a map that was created using the MT@ editor and the file is .map extension (xml), I could not do it because the data will be used in a native function that was created by sa-mp team. This sounds illogical.

You can instead sell your time. So people can pay for you to code for them (each hour some $).

Anyway, to summarise:

You want to know where; on this free forum; for a free mod; populated by people giving their free time to release free maps, tutorials, includes, help, and more; for others to host free servers; you can release your stuff made on free tools; using knowledge gained for free; for personal profit? Is that a fair summary?
Maybe we don't have a profit from all those, but Kalcor does. They why not allowing a selling scripts/maps with own board ?

You can offer your scripting service in exchange of money. That's totally legal.
