Summary0005256: Frobbing readable with invalid xdata_contents breaks the game
DescriptionIf the xdata_contents spawnarg of a readable is missing or points to something that’s not xdata, frobbing the readable makes the player lose his ability to frob anything, so the map becomes unplayable. This hits a lot of beta testers, and sometimes this bug makes it into released FMs.

It’d be much better if there were a fallback to some kind of default xdata if no valid xdata is found i.e. a sheet that’s blank or reads “No valid xdata_contents found.”
Steps To Reproduce1) In a map in DR, right-click to “Create entity”.
2) Open the Readables folder and select & create one of the readables in there.
3) By default this readable has no valid xdata_contents. Start TDM and load the map.
4) Frob the readable. You lose the ability to frob and have to restart or revert to an earlier save.
