Not sure if it helps to make the empty area circular. (the graph is just 4-connected.)
Definitely harder to implement.
Challenge idea: given a connected area and a starting point, construct a "pathway" through it with the maximum number of 3-branches.
Or... (1.5* (number of 3-branches) + (number of 2 branches)) ?
Still need to compute the correct coefficient.
On another note...
People could figure out the near-optimal solution (*), even though each iteration takes a second to execute.
How good can an AI do?
(*): they looks good, according to my rough calculation.

I think the "quine must not read its source code" should be removed, just like the "built-in are banned" one.
It's usually just confusing, and there are several ways to work around it (JavaScript's reading a function's source code, and jelly's (I forgot what the built-in is).
Besides, languages can just make a built-in "take the rest of the program and run it with itself as input"... if they really want.
With no increase in score.
