The Third Person Elytra mod has been made to remedy one of the biggest issues that players face when using Elytra. When Minecraft 1.9 came out, it brought a wide array of great gameplay features that made the Minecraft experience significantly more enjoyable for pretty much everyone who updated. Although there were many noteworthy features in the update, perhaps the best feature was the Elytra which basically allowed players to take flight at will and enjoy the beautiful world of Minecraft from a whole new perspective. Elytra is an excellent feature, and the best part is that it even allowed players to choose whether they want to fly in first person mode or if they wanted to enjoy the sky from a third person perspective.
Perhaps the biggest issue that players had with Elytra was that it always started in first person mode so whenever you took flight you’d automatically be switched to a first person camera mode which became slightly annoying for players since they had to manually fix their camera mode every single time they took flight. The Third Person Elytra mod fixes this problem by pretty much forcing the camera to start up in third person mode every single time players take flight, and this takes away the inconvenience of having to switch from a first person every single time you flew.
The Third Person Elytra mod works client side seamlessly and doesn’t require any customization or configuration either so once you install it you’ll be good to go. Another great thing worth mentioning about this mod is that it doesn’t have any issues when running on vanilla Minecraft servers and this is of course great news for players who frequently play on servers and don’t want to risk getting banned or penalized for using this mod.
