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!

Features
  • 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
Download
Required: Forge universal files for your minecraft version (http://files.minecraftforge.net/)
The Forge files go into your minecraft jar.
Tested with Forge 9.10.0.828

For Minecraft 1.6.4 Download Shoulder Surfing 1.6.4
*Updated to Minecraft 1.6.4
*Note that Forge will not update to 1.7 for a while

Questions?
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.

Just installed this in my (quite heavily) modded Minecraft, runs perfectly so far, with the latest version of optifine installed Posted Image
Only problem I've encountered so far, is when you back up against a wall, the camera still zooms right into the back of your head (like the vanilla 3rd person camera), rather than next to it, which makes negotiating small spaces a bit difficult, but other wise this is a great mod, good job!

Edit: Actually, after a bit more testing, it seems that this mod disables Optifines zoom capability. Not a gamebreaking issue by any means, just a heads up for anyone that wants to use this with OF installed too.

Updated.  This mod is now a forge coremod, which injects code into the base classes instead of overwriting them.  It does not guarantee compatibility with mods that mess with base classes, but it helps a lot.

This should work now!

Try the new version, it should be more compatible with Minecraft.  Install Forge into the minecraft jar, then this mod to the Coremods folder.  F5 should toggle between first-person view, third person over the shoulder, and third person head-on views.

Found a big bug umm when you shoot an arrow it goes and stops in midair and falls strait down.
Edit: it still hits things though
Another Edit: it only happens in creative

When you are doing anything like shooting a bow for example, the arrow does not shoot where it should. You really need to make it where no matter what the player will be looking at the crosshair.

This reminds me of the better third person mod.
Can you try to make this mod compatiable with the improved first person mod.
I personally think this is better than the better third person mod even if the crosshair doesn't show unless you're close to the block.

The crosshair can display farther if you mess with the config file. I don't have the code on me so I don't recall what the option is named.

Basically the default is to only show a crosshair if you can reach the block or entity.  You can turn this off in the config.  There is also another setting to show the crosshair on the horizon if nothing is in range, which may be useful for shooting bows and such.

I can probably make it all simpler without messing with the config, but I'm busy at work right now and coding the byte code injection is a serious pain.
