Top side texture of a curved wall

Does anybody know how to make a texture follow the curve of a wall? Is it possible?

Short answer: no.

Long answer: if you make some segmented morph/slab to sit on top and allign those, you can make a lot of short straight segments to make it look better.

Oh and you could painstakingly make a whole custom texture to fit, but that would be a one off and it is near impossible to allign a texture for the top/side of a wall.

Above post actually helped me remember

1) Segment you wall using magic wand settings. If you keep the segments short you won't really notice it.
or
2) Create small segments of curved wall (cut the existing curved wall in a small section i.e. 10% and multiply this segment 10x).
