That is optimal.

### Re: Solitaire of Life

Considering the last one was over so quickly, here's a more elegant one inspired by my first one:
x = 13, y = 13, rule = LifeHistory6.C2$2.C7.C$6.C$4.C3.C2$C2.C5.C2.C2$4.C3.C$6.C$2.C7.C2$6.C!

Have fun!

Probably suboptimal, 98 cells:

27 for that one, probably minimal:

That is probably minimal, seeing as the smallest I could achieve was 29.

New one, hopefully harder than the last one:
