    Hence why my kids don’t play Bedrock. Oh, and it doesn’t work on Linux, so I’d have to reboot into Windows for them to play.

    So we play Java because it’s easy for me to set up a local server, I can install mods, and it works on Linux. If Bedrock worked, they’d probably play more with friends stuck on consoles.

      Awesome! You‘re my kind of person. Congrats to your principles!

      Btw, you can make a bedrock bridge. I have one of those. Works flawless. Then your kids can play with all their friends.

        I’ll have to look into that. Their friends wanted to play once, so I installed Bedrock and everything and then they flaked. But maybe I’ll try again so I’m ready in case they want to play again.

            Huh, so it’s like a small proxy server that bedrock clients connect to? So I’d host a Java Minecraft server, and they would connect to my proxy, which connects to the Java Minecraft server?

            That’s pretty cool! I assume it works fine for consoles? My kid’s friends play on Xbox and Switch, so they’d need to be able to enter my bedrock server info.

              Yes, its very easy. The proxy is kinda virtual though. You dont have to do a thing. Drop in the plugin, amend the config file and thats all.
