Core Units Appear on Map during deployment

Is there a way to edit a unit's trigger so that a new core unit will show up PREPLACED on the map DURING deployment phase? As best I can do right now is set a time trigger so that a new core unit shows up on the first turn but the unit is still invisible while the player is setting up his units during the deployment phase so a player doesn't know what units s/he will be getting for the scenario.

Thanks.

With the exception of the first scenario of a campaign, there is no other method but the time trigges as i know.

To the placement - what Nico said.

If you want you can inform the player *during* deployment that he'll receive something at turn 1 (or whenever it appears).

This requires a trigger set to fire at turn 1 -> run at "instantly" -> plus the "display message" action with the info you want to give. This should give the pop-up msg when deployment begins.
