If you are in 10.14.0 you will not longer able to download legit copy of macOS from Apple store.
It's download and install as system update.

Here is script to generate >5GB installer and also create bootable USB media.
I'm sharing code of script and if you wanna get executable download from attachment.

Before running script:

Download following files from apple server catalog: https://swscan.apple.com/content/ca...ion-snowleopard-leopard.merged-1.sucatalog.gz

1) BaseSystem.dmg
2) BaseSystem.chunklist
3) InstallInfo.plist
4) InstallESDDmg.pkg
5) AppleDiagnostics.dmg
6) AppleDiagnostics.chunklist

and put downloaded files to "src" folder where "makeLegitApp" (script) is located

Folder structure should be like:

parentFolder
|_makeLegitApp​
|_src​
|_BaseSystem.dmg​
|_BaseSystem.chunklist​
|_InstallInfo.plist​
|_InstallESDDmg.pkg​
|_AppleDiagnostics.dmg​
|_AppleDiagnostics.chunklist​


All file should be from single <array></array> tag
Below is example of tag
XML:
