For instance:

Universe SandboxStartup Too ManyThe Startup Too Many achievement in Universe Sandbox worth 41 pointsStart Universe Sandbox 10^4 = 10000 times


Requires you to start the game 10,000 times

Can I script achievements like this? Is that allowed?

The Steam way of doing things is not like TA on xbox is; I have far more tools at my disposal on PC than I do on a console, and if it assists me on taking out some of the grind on certain achievements, or makes them possible, I am for using them.

Honestly, I would subjectively view this as cheating.

With that said, and remaining objective here, there is no way that anyone could prove the method was used so it is completely up to your own conscience more than anything else.
