ShoulderSurfing is a mod I created from scratch which replaces the default third person behind-the-body view (F5 key) with a more traditional "over the shoulder" view. This style of camera was pioneered by games like Capcom's Resident Evil 4.
This mod injects code into base files so it may not be compatible with other mods that modify the rendering engine.
This is also a forge mod, so it will require forge and go into the mods folder.
NOTE: FORGE WILL TAKE A WHILE TO UPDATE TO 1.7!
- Over-the-shoulder camera
- Saved settings
- Hotkeys to move the camera a bit (default I-J-K-L)
- Corrective cross-hair positioning
- Dont show player head if camera gets too close to it
Required: Forge universal files for your minecraft version (http://files.minecraftforge.net/)
The Forge files go into your minecraft jar.

Just ask and I will do my best to answer. My free time is very limited so there may be a (huge) delay in replies, if I reply at all.
Please note this is new and I have only tested it locally so who knows what kind of bugs might creep up. I suggest testing with a clean minecraft jar and just forge, especially if you use a lot of things that edit base files.
