Import Packages To Specified Folder

Editor

-

-

It'd be nice if there was an option when importing a package (from the Asset Store or a file) to "extract" it to a specific folder.

Everything currently gets dumped in the root Assets folder, which quickly results in a cluttered project. Moving the files after the import can be annoying especially if it has to reprocess/reimport a bunch of files again once they are moved.

This may break some assets that rely on hardcoded paths, but it's easy enough to move them back manually if that is the case.

    Maybe add a project setting to specify a default folder for imported assets. Then you can just set it once.

    From a usability perspective, this isn't a great idea. However, it would be great to have a feature for a "virtual file explorer" kind of thing where you rearrange folders however you want, but it doesn't affect the underlying folder structure. It would just be a convenience thing. That's what I think.
