    OSX has this annoying habit where, if you unzip a file containing a unity package, it then goes and unzips that too, leaving you with nothing but a rather useless folder.

    Has anyone found a setting somewhere that prevents auto-decompression of embedded archives?

    Ta!

    When people send me zipped Unity Packages I use Zipeg ( http://www.zipeg.com/ ) to extract them which works well. A better way to handle this is to either not zip the Unity Package or to first put it into a folder before zipping.

    if you open a terminal you can also use the command:
    > unzip file.unitypackage.zip

    I had the same problem and my solution was to go to Archive Utility and in preferences just shutdown the "Keep expanding if possible" option.

    Idk why didn't work using Terminal.
