pm_thirdPersonClip clip third person view into world space

pm_thirdPersonDeath enables third person view when player dies

pm_thirdPersonHeight height of camera from normal view height in 3rd person

The player animations look much worse in 3rd person then those in Doom3. Especially the jumping animation, almost feels unfinished somehow.
