Hierarchy Decorator is an extension for Unity 2018.4 and higher to support custom drawing within the Hierarchy window, and add extra information functionality. This provides easier and helpful structure to the Hierarchy without getting overly noisy or messy.

There is a scriptable object that is required for hierarchy decorator to run. If it is deleted, another will be created in the base of your asset folder in Assets/HierarchyDecorator/. These settings are also accessible from the Preference window.

All settings enabled and disabled will reflect the Hierarchy instantly.

General Settings

This section will contain all the general enabling/disabling of features and systems. In the future this may be redesigned or structured differently depending on the catergories required.

Global settings


The Prefix tab controls the design of the headers and seperators for the hierarchy. Settings are seperate for light and dark mode, to provide convenience and accessibility.

Prefix Settings

Component Icons

To provide selection and custom choice over what components will display in the inspector, here all icons that exist in your current version will appear in their specified catergories. Toggling the icons on or off will display them in the hierarchy on the right side, and you can also add your own MonoBehaviours for custom scripts.
