The game has been proposed by me in 2015, in our Chinese forum.

The Chinese sentence
在左图中添加尽量少的格点,使得它成为稳态:
我的最好方案如右图,为9个格点。

means
Add cells as less as possible to stabilize the pattern in the left into a still-life:
The best I can achieve is shown in the right, with 9 cells.

I think 格点 should be 细胞

53 was ridiculously difficult to beat, but here's 51:
x = 20, y = 18, rule = LifeHistory

Maybe it can still be improved?

The best I had was this similar solution, also 43 cells, and I don't see any way to reach 42:
x = 12, y = 12, rule = LifeHistory
3.2A$2A2.C$A.2C$2.C4.CA$2.C2.C2.A$3.4A.C.AC$ACA4.CA2.C$A2.2AC3.C$2.C

Add a little here, take away a little there... how about 39?

Code: Select all
x = 15, y = 9, rule = LifeHistory
3.A8.2A$2.C.A3.2C2.C$.A2.A2.A2.A.A$A3.C.C.A.C.2C$.3A.C2.C2.C2.A$5.C.A
C3.CA$3.CA.C$3.C2.C$4.2A!
#C [[ THUMBNAIL THUMBSIZE 2 ]]

There's at least a three-cell improvement still, that I've left for someone else.

Saka, I think the cells in your version are incorrect. If I have it right, I can't see a way to get smaller than 10 cells:

x = 8, y = 4, rule = LifeHistory
