You can make them with transparent colors ... or you can make them  
small and jitter the x and y values,... or you can use hexbin plots...  
or you can use 2d density plots or.... probably other ways.

We don't really have a very good problem description yet, so it is  
difficult to be very helpful. Why not read the Posting Guide and see  
if cam be more complete along its guidelines.
