Maps with Texture: 2/3/2014 19:49:32

I want my sumos to wrestle in the sand! In Inkscape, I messed around with Texture to make a cool effect that looks like sand. But it won't save in WL as such. Instead it looks like the above map -- no texture, no sand, just a big brown cookie.

Is it possible to add texture to maps? How could I make my map look like there is sand?

Only way to add texture that I know of is an object behind the territories. I added a star background to my succession wars map (it was just an image of space that I vectorized), but it made the file size way too big so I took it off. The only effects I added are the colored halos around the different 'Houses' and the logos for each as well:

Like I said, the vectorized image worked, it was just too big (the map took a long time to load).
