Only one can be built to avoid abuse.

One question - how to implement this ability?

I could add this as summoning of invisible, stepable unit vanishing after 1 turn, but summoning with such long range would be hard to use and give away enemy positions before use.
As Reveal shop item is hardcoded, I cannot reference it, but I'm affraid it would need coding.

summoning currently is independent from spell range and can be used only in melee range.

public static final int SYSTEM_SPECIAL_EFFECT_REVEAL = 119; // used to reveal a spot on target location, target is read by the green environmental floating action.

In other words Reveal ability can now be done.

Now only doing graphics for it all:
unit image
image while occupied
Reveal ability icon
Reveal ability projectile (may be the same as icon if transparent)

It should have a telescope, and the stone structure will make it look medieval.

I think this maybe change ability to reaveal all invisible units in 15 range only for 3 turns and his coldown is 5 turns.

I dont think such a long distance telescope can focus enough to discover invisible units and its quite useless too, most spys and assassins sneak through using battering rams and knights as cover

Remember be it real life or in-game best way to sneak in is in the midst of chaos

Yeah, not changing the ability. Only needs images, 2 .json files, and edits to other files in order for it to be ready.
