Vassal was not designed to do this, so it is quite difficult. I believe
some players have developed convoluted methods of doing this, but it is
likely to be ugly. The basic mechanism would be to update the Map and
specify a keystroke that is applied to every unit that lands on the map.
Then each unit can respond to this keystroke by issuing a Global Key
Command with a Restrict Range option to all counters within a given
range. The 'target' counters would then need to respond to this Global
key command by determining if they are invisible (A Trigger Action with
a test for InvisibleToOthers=true) and make themselves visible.
