Didn't find a reduction, but I found an alternate 176:

Code: Select all

x = 14, y = 11, rule = LifeHistory
7.2E$2A6.E2.A$EDE.2ED.E.EDE$2.E.E.E.E.E.E$.2E.E.E.E.EDEA$E3.E.E.E.A.E
$3E2.E2.E.A.E$3.2A3.A.EDEA$2.A6.A$3.A.A$4.2A!
EDIT: Nice work, testitem! I knew it was somewhere in that region. Your turn to post a new one.

Can be trivially modified to save an OFF and get you to 94:

Code: Select all

x = 19, y = 11, rule = LifeHistory
11.2E$11.E.E$9.2E2.E$E.EA.EA.A2.2E.AE$2E.A.AD2.2A3.A.E$3.E.A.2A.DA.A
2.A$3.A.A.E2.2A.E2A$4.E2.E$7.2E6.3E$15.E2.E$17.2E!
At least eight more cells can be saved.

EDIT: Toroidalet's choice of OFFs is quite interesting and pushes the least upper bound down to 85!

I would certainly be inclined to agree, since I specifically designed it to be impossible with two OFFs, well done!
