    I have some asset store packages that contain a lot of models but I want to only import 1 model with it's dependencies. I'd rather not increase the project size by several hundred megabytes by importing the whole package. Anyone have tips on how to handle this scenario? Are there any asset store utilities that can help with this?

    This isn't the best solution but you could temporarily import the package either in your existing project or a new one.Then create a new scene with all the assets you need and save that scene. Once you're done right click on the scene in Project View > Select dependencies and then Right-Click again and > Export Package.

    Once you've removed the original asset you can import the one you've just made.
