Does it bother you that you have a disembodied hand in first person? What about the fact that you can only see a very small portion of your skin then?
This mod makes your third-person player model show in first person, so no more disembodied hands. :)
Those aren't the only reasons you might want this mod, though. Having this mod makes you feel like a boss while you're running. Being able to see two hands moving like you're actually running really is cool.
Also, bows are held in your left hand (like real-life right-handed archers), which also feels quite epic.

Notes: This mod is a coremod, and it also requires the RenderPlayer API and Kes5219's utils mod (link in the files page for the download).
- Install Minecraft Forge.
- Place the .jar inside the file you downloaded for Improved First Person in .minecraft/coremods/.
- Place the .jar inside Kes5219's utils in the same folder.
- Install the RenderPlayer API by putting the contents of its zip inside minecraft.jar (you should read its installation instructions to be sure, though).
