I'm using unity combined with c# but I'm having trouble with navigating the hierarchy from within my scripts to get access to specific components.

 

For example my hierarchy looks like this:

 

 

Ship

   Box01

   Box02

     Cylinder02

   Cylinder01

   Main Camera

 

 

Box02 got a component in which needs access to the camera component in the Main Camera. 

 

I've figured that what I need to do should be to somehow navigate to the Main Camera gameObject and then use the getComponent function but I'm not sure how to do it. I tried getting to the Ship gameObject by using transform.parent but that didn't seem to work.

 

I've been trying to find a good resource which explains this but I cant find one.

 

 

I finally found something that helped me.

The first answer here helped my immensely so if anyone else runs in to similar trouble then go here.
