This is a set of wall covering panels of English ivy covering original Maxis stone and brick walls.
Now included are sets of stone: Stack 'Em Up, Running the Rapids, and Say No More, and brick: Industrio and London red Chimney.

I kept the photoshop files with the original background in its own layer, so I could easily replace it with a different background if anyone wants.

I've been hoping for something like this for quite a while. I'd love to see a brick version, if possible. Thank you!

exactduckwoman - Sure, I can do that. Would the Industro basic brick wall be acceptable?

And to anyone who cares to answer, should that be a separete submission in its own thread, or can i add it to this one?

I am not exactduckwoman, but for me a brick version would be fine. :-)

Very nice - but would it be possible to have a version on one of the medival-style stone textures? I'm trying to make an old castle...

Either way, thanks!

Added two stone sets, Running the Rapids and Say No More, and one brick, London red Chimney.

Sorry for the delay to those who requested the additional sets, I lost some of the photoshop files and had to recreate them. Because of this some look slightly different, but still line up on the edges so should not be an issue. I've backed up all the files now, so if there are any other requests, I should be able to get them up quicker.
