XR Step-by-Step! Organizing your Unity Project

Virtual and Augmented Reality together are now referred to as XR or “Extended-Reality”. You’re in the right place at the right time to build something amazing in XR!

XR applications can be created in Unity for many devices, our focus will be on Microsoft Hololens and the Oculus Quest 2 – in this blog post series we will specifically focus on Oculus Quest 2 in the latest Unity 2022.

Unity has the tendency to add all of your imported packages under your assets and clutter up your organization pretty quick. There are a lot of opinions on how to organize this to make it easier to find your files, scripts, models, etc. Here is my approach.

  • Here’s how I organize my Project Folders
    • _Project
      • _Scenes (the underscores put them first in the folder list)
        • Demo (demo or testing scenes)
      • Animations
      • Effects
      • Images
        • Logos (logos used in the application settings)
      • Materials
      • Models
      • Prefabs
      • Scripts
        • Common (common / shared code between scripts)
      • Shaders
      • Sounds
        • Music
        • SFX
  • Here’s how I organize my Hierarchy Window
    • Player
      • Camera
      • Interaction Manager (this where I attach my top level scene scripts)
    • Environment
      • (this is where things like lighting live)
    • Objects
      • (this is where all the models, etc live)
