Connecting to BCX with Minecraft Bedrock Edition

With Geyser and Floodgate plugins installed and up to date on our Minecraft server, Bedrock Edition Minecraft players should be able to successfully connect to our Java Edition Server. This gives players on Nintendo Switch, Playstation Consoles, and Xbox Consoles the ability to have a good time with us. However, you have to adjust your console's network connection settings. Here's what you'll need to do..

The accompanying screenshots were generated with a Nintendo Switch.

1. Set manual DNS entries on your console

In your console's internet connection settings, for whatever network you are using whether it be WiFi or Wired LAN. You will need to set your DNS to Manual and change both the Primary and Secondary DNS to the following..

  • Primary DNS: 104.238.130.180
  • Secondary DNS: 001.001.001.001

Save your changes

2. Once these settings have been changed, start Minecraft on your console.

3. With the multiplayer server tab visible, select any one of the available servers and select Join Server.

We will not actually be connecting to any of these servers as our manual DNS entries will prevent this from happening. Instead the connection will drop, and Minecraft will present us with a unlocked server manager list. This should really have been available from the start, right Microsoft?

4. Select Manage Server List

We don't want to simply connect to a server. We want to add a server to our unlocked list that we can access in the future.

5. Add a server

6. Enter mc.blackcatsystems.org for the Server Address.

Keep the default Server Port, 19132. You can <optionally> change the Display name of this server to BlackCatX or whatever you want to call it in the bottom field.

7. Click Submit and back out to the server list

8. Connect to the server

I, Ski, rarely play Minecraft on my Nintendo Switch so it's very important for you to provide me with any connection issues you may have. With that being said, we have a policy of not updating our Java Edition Server until a Bedrock Edition Client has been pushed. Bedrock Edition is updated automatically on consoles with no way to revert for on demand play and compatibility with our server. Feel free to reach out on Discord anytime for support.

Connect in Java or Bedrock editions of the game on any console using address mc.blackcatsystems.org

BlackCatX is a vanilla Minecraft survival server with plugins promoting a capitalist lifestyle.

If you are by yourself, you may ask to join a town or build where ever you'd like in the wilderness, nether, or end. 
If you are new and joining us with a few friends, you may find a suitable area for building a town. We do not cycle through overworlds with major updates and we will keep what you build, forever, on the overworld. 
And if you are rejoining us from a predated community of ours, come on!
With such a largely generated and somewhat developed overworld, we want to assure you that we will not at any time task you with visiting anything or everything. You can truly have your area and your peace here with us. However, transportation information for road, rail, and warps can be found at spawn.

Our world is the combined worlds of BlackCatGaming (2011), SiriusCraft (2013), SiriusCraft 2 (2014), AzoCraft (2016), and new beautifully modded v1.19.1 terrain that continues to generate. These worlds have been preserved, upgraded, and assembled as one with connected highway and rail systems. Five state governments exist, most being comprised of their predated community's overworld map along with new terrain. Exceptions to this include the state of BladeHaven which was developed over new terrain in SiriusCraft 2, and the state of FCA - Filthy Casuals Association which was founded on new terrain in January 2022. With over 802 Kilometers of land, there's still a lot that's untouched. This is true even for older regions generated in Beta v1.4, and even more so with new generation down to block level -64. Former property and town owners have absolute right to reclaim what's theirs. Former places of importance for government and business have mostly remained the same.
Come say hello again.
